Other bug fixes and changes:

- Update to version 2.7.6
  * Added log message at -vvvv when using netconf connection listing connection details.
  * Changes how ansible-connection names socket lock files. They now use the same name as the socket itself, and as such do not lock other attempts on connections to the same host, or cause issues with overly-long hostnames.

  * Moved error in netconf connection plugin from at import to on connection.
  * This reverts some changes from commit 723daf3. If a line is found in the file, exactly or via regexp matching, it must not be added again. insertafter/insertbefore options are used only when a line is to be inserted, to specify where it must be added.

- Modules updates too many to mention here
  please look at package documentation directory (/usr/share/doc/packages/.../changelogs)
- bug fixes:
  - **Security Fix** - Some connection exceptions would cause no_log
    specified on a task to be ignored.  If this happened, the task information,
    including any private information coul d have been displayed to stdout and
    (if enabled, not the default) logged to a log file specified in
    ansible.cfg's log_path.  Additionally, sites which redirected stdout from
    ansible runs to a log file may have stored that private information onto
    disk that way as well.  (https://github.com/ansible/ansible/pull/41414)
  - Changed the admin_users config option to not include "admin" by default
    as admin is frequently used for a non-privileged account
  - Changed the output to "text" for "show vrf" command as default "json"
    output format with respect to "eapi" transport was failing
  - Document mode=preserve for both the copy and template module
  - Fix added for Digital Ocean Volumes API change causing Ansible to
    recieve an unexpected value in the response. 
  - Fix an encoding issue when parsing the examples from a plugins'
  - Fix iosxr_config module to handle route-policy, community-set,
    prefix-set, as-path-set and rd-set blocks.  All these blocks are part of
    route-policy language of iosxr.
  - Fix mode=preserve with remote_src=True for the copy module
  - Implement mode=preserve for the template module
  - The yaml callback plugin now allows non-ascii characters to be
  - Various grafana_* modules - Port away from the deprecated
    b64encodestring function to the b64encode function instead. 
  - added missing 'raise' to exception definition
  - allow custom endpoints to be used in the aws_s3 module
  - allow set_options to be called multiple times
  - ansible-doc - fixed traceback on missing plugins
  - cast the device_mapping volume size to an int in the ec2_ami module
  - copy - fixed copy to only follow symlinks for files in the non-recursive case
  - copy module - The copy module was attempting to change the mode of files
    for remote_src=True even if mode was not set as a parameter.  This
    failed on filesystems which do not have permission bits
  - copy module - fixed recursive copy with relative paths
  - correct debug display for all cases
  - correctly check hostvars for vars term
  - correctly handle yaml inventory files when entries are null dicts

  - dynamic includes - Improved performance by fixing re-parenting on copy
  - dynamic includes - Use the copied and merged task for calculating task
    vars (https://github.com/ansible/ansible/pull/39762)
  - file - fixed the default follow behaviour of file to be true
  - file module - Eliminate an error if we're asked to remove a file but
    something removes it while we are processing the request
  - file module - Fix error when recursively assigning permissions and a
    symlink to a nonexistent file is present in the directory tree
  - file module - Fix error when running a task which assures a symlink to a
    nonexistent file exists for the second and subsequent times
  - file module - The file module allowed the user to specify src as a
    parameter when state was not link or hard.  This is documented as only
    applying to state=link or state=hard but in previous Ansible, this could
    have an effect in rare cornercases.  For instance, "ansible -m file -a
    'state=directory path=/tmp src=/var/lib'" would create /tmp/lib.  This
    has been disabled and a warning emitted (will change to an error in
  - file module - The touch subcommand had its diff output broken during the
    2.6.x development cycle.  This is now fixed
  - fix BotoCoreError exception handling
  - fix apt-mark on debian6 (https://github.com/ansible/ansible/pull/41530)

  - include_role/import_role - Use the computed role name for
    include_role/import_role so to diffentiate between names computed from
    host vars (https://github.com/ansible/ansible/pull/39516)-
    include_role/import_role - improved performance and recursion depth
  - lineinfile - fix insertbefore when used with BOF to not insert duplicate
    lines (https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues/38219)
  - password lookup - Do not load password lookup in network filters,
    allowing the password lookup to be overriden
  - pause - ensure ctrl+c interrupt works in all cases
  - powershell - use the tmpdir set by `remote_tmp` for become/async tasks
    instead of the generic $env:TEMP -
  - selinux - correct check mode behavior to report same changes as normal

    non-ascii characters and using the template path in ansible_managed

    tracebacks on Python2 when characters that are not present in the user's

  - user - only change the expiration time when necessary
