Known Issue in boto_* execution modules

This release contains an issue that causes the boto_* execution modules to display a __salt__ not defined error (issue #30300). This issue will be fixed in an upcoming release, but can be manually resolved by completing the following:

  1. Download the boto_* execution modules that you would like to update from the 2015.8 branch of Salt. A complete list of affected modules with the specific changes is available in :pull`30867`.

    A simple way to get the updated modules is to download a zip file of the 2015.8 branch from GitHub. The updated modules are in the salt\modules directory.

  2. Place the boto_* modules into salt://_modules.

  3. Run the following command to sync these modules to all Salt minions:

    salt '*' saltutil.sync_modules
