Default Fwd: SRU: Bridging documentation in the JeOS VMBuilder documentation is wrong

Copying Matthew East of the Doc team onto this.
Matt I know you have done a lot of SRUs for the ubuntu-docs package.* We have a pretty large problem with the server guide as it relates to the JeOS VMBuilder documentation.* How do we go about making sure it gets updated and added into the server updates?

Thanks for your help,

To: jjesse@gmail.com

I think we can do SRUs for the server guide, but I can't remember ever

actually doing one :-).**Anyway, following the SRU wiki page:

1) The impact of the bug is that the instructions in the Server Guide
won't work, causing confusion and wasted time for the user.

2) A fix has been committed to revision 132 of the lp:ubuntu-doc branch.

3) A patch for the ubuntu-serverguide package is attached.

4) To reproduce the bug follow the current instructions, and your VM
won't be able to connect to the network using a bridge interface.
Change the XML in VMBuilder/plugins/libvirt/templates/libvirtxml.tmpl

and the VM should connect fine.

5) There should be no regression potential, and since the fix is an XML
configuration file there should be no need to re-translate the package.
At least as I understand what is and what is not translated.

I don't think I can upload a fixed package to release-proposed, or at
least I have never done so.**If someone else can help with the step 4 of
the SRU process it would be appreciated.
