** Summary changed:

- [SRU] Update to bugfix release 2.2.6
+ [SRU] Update to bug-fix release 2.2.8 in Xenial

** Description changed:

  VLC has received many bug fixes on the stable 2.2.x branch since 2.2.2
  was released. I think 16.04 LTS should get these fixes.
  [Test Case]
  Install vlc from xenial-proposed and test it for at least one week. Play
  different video formats to catch any regressions, and use it as you
  normally would.
  [Regression Potential]
  The 2.2.x branch receives only bug fixes, which are cherry-picked from
  the master branch where the main development takes place. So, I think
  the regression potential is low.
  [Other Info]
  VLC 2.2 maintenance branch.
