	  more than 1 repositories to retrieve packages from.

	* Remove the HELPER_PKG variable from common.sh. The helper package by

	* Fix a bug in the way snf-image-update-helper reads the links of the
	  kernel and the initrd in the helper VM.
	* Use environmental variables instead of input options to pass sensitive
	  data to pithcat. This is needed because when pithcat is running, every
	  user can see the program's command line by using ps.

126 127 128 129
2012-09-15, v0.6
	* Fix import and export scripts
	* Add new config_url os parameter. This can be used by snf-image to
	  download a json file that contains the value for other os parameters
130 131 132
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs before
	  UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-enjected files never
	  get overwritten by any other configuration task.

	  programm will be used if --with-progress-monitor flag is used in

	  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.
