Weekly status #314

Weekly status for the week of 28th August to 3rd September.


This past week, the focus was on improving our documentation. Otherwise it was a quiet week with only a few bug fixes.

LXD highlights


  • Added the lxc man pages to the reference documentation.
  • Updated the contribution documentation to help new contributors get started.
  • Added a guide to the documentation on how to convert Windows VMs in a vmdk file to LXD using lxd-migrate and virt-v2v.
  • When parsing a version of a command, include the version in the error message.
  • The following sub-commands of lxc now show in --help without the --all flag; init, monitor, pause, and query. This was done in order to generate man pages for those commands.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug where updating an instance’s configuration concurrently using lxc config set, randomly returned success but failed to update.
  • Fixed a bug where bash completion failed to work correctly for projects other than default.
  • Fixed a bug where the version of dnsmasq couldn’t be parsed correctly due to different language settings on the host.
