** Description changed:

+ [Impact]
+ 
+  * In the past a lack of updated open-vm-tools versions was found fatal
+    and therefore we agreed to regularly backport those to the latest LTS.
+    This is backporting the recent version 11.0 to B/E releases.
+ 
+ [Test Case]
+ 
+  * Test open-vm-tools done by VMWare QA Team as agreed for these
+    backports.
+ 
+ [Regression Potential]
+ 
+  * This has the usual regression potential of a new version upgrade and
+    therefore is higher than a usual SRU. But as agreed int he past to
+    support new (virtual) hardware open-vm-tools shall regularly be
+    backported. I suggest keeping it somewhat longer in proposed than usual
+    just to be on the safe side.
+ 
+ [Other Info]
+ 
+  * This is a practice for or quite a while (almost two years now), see:
+    - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/open-vm-tools/+bug/1741390
+    - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/open-vm-tools/+bug/1784638

+ 
+ The request back then came from the community and the decision back then
+ was between VMWare and Ubuntu. VMWare QA Team since then does the
+ qualification of these uploads as we (I) don't have a matrix of Host
+ versions for that around.
+ 
+ Under the accepted special SRU cases [1] this qualifies for #2 and #3 of
+ [2].
