  • Update patches after rebase with upstream v3000 tag (bsc#1167437)
  • Fix some requirements issues depending on Python3 versions
  • Removes obsolete patch
  • Fix for low rpm_lowpkg unit test
  • Add python-singledispatch as dependency for python2-salt
  • Fix for temp folder definition in loader unit test

  • Sanitize grains loaded from roster_grains.json cache during "state.pkg"
  • Build: Buildequire pkgconfig(systemd) instead of systemd pkgconfig(systemd) is provided by systemd, so this is de-facto no change. But inside the Open Build Service (OBS), the same symbol is also provided by systemd-mini, which exists to shorten build-chains by only enabling what other packages need to successfully build
  • Backport saltutil state module to 2019.2 codebase (bsc#1167556)
  • Add new custom SUSE capability for saltutil state module
