179 180 181

	  data to pithcat. This is needed because when pithcat is running,
	  every user can see the program's command line by using ps.
209

210 211 212 213
2012-09-15, v0.6

	  download a json file that contains the value for other os parameters
214 215
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs
	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
216

224

	  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.
