212

213 214 215 216
2012-09-15, v0.6

	  download a json file that contains the value for other os parameters
217 218

	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
219

	  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
