160 161 162

	  those that should be propagated to the user through the monitoring

	  kernel and the initrd in the helper VM.
187 188 189

	  data to pithcat. This is needed because when pithcat is running,
	  every user can see the program's command line by using ps.
190

191 192 193 194
2012-09-15, v0.6
	* Fix import and export scripts

	  download a json file that contains the value for other os parameters
195 196
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs
	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
197
	  get overwritten by any other configuration task.

205

	  non-empty value
	* Remove --enable-pithos-backend option in configure. This will be
	  detected at runtime
	* Create package list in snf-update-helper every time debootstrap is
	  performed. If a cache file is found, snf-update-helper will use this
	  list to determine if it is OK to use this cache file or not.
