motd.tail isn't a thing in Ubuntu 14.04 and beyond. The simplest way to keep it working is to add a file to /etc/update-motd.d that displays /etc/motd.tail

@e0d there was some thought that your xenial branch had a fix for this, but I didn't see it.

Make sure that the following steps are done before merging

  • @devops team member has commented with 👍
  • are you adding any new default values that need to be overridden when this goes live?
    • Open a ticket (DEVOPS) to make sure that they have been added to secure vars.
    • Add an entry to the CHANGELOG.

BTW, if this technique rubs you the wrong way, I can do it differently.
