BDR2: Electric Boogaloo (towards Ubuntu 14.04)

If you've been in the Security Onion community for a few years, you may remember that back in 2012 we embarked on a project called BDR (Big Distro Rebuild) to put all of our software into true Ubuntu packages designed for Ubuntu 12.04:

It's now time to rebuild all of those packages for Ubuntu 14.04, so I'm calling this BDR2.  As mentioned at the Security Onion Conference, I'm hoping to get all this work done by Christmas, but no promises!

I've done some initial work to get the securityonion-client metapackage to install cleanly on Ubuntu 14.04.
Sguil client running on Ubuntu 14.04
I'll soon start working on the securityonion-sensor and securityonion-server metapackages.

Help Wanted

We're going to need lots of help testing all of these packages over the next few months, so if you'd like to contribute back to the community, please join the security-onion-testing mailing list and then see the following thread:
