	  more than 1 repositories to retrieve packages from.

	  snf-image-update-helper. You can still install a package from the

170 171 172

	  kernel and the initrd in the helper VM.
197 198 199

	  data to pithcat. This is needed because when pithcat is running,
	  every user can see the program's command line by using ps.
200

201 202 203 204
2012-09-15, v0.6
	* Fix import and export scripts

	  download a json file that contains the value for other os parameters
205 206
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs
	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
207

215

	  programm will be used if --with-progress-monitor flag is used in
	  configure or if PROGRESS_MONITOR variable in the defaults file has a
	  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.
