	  kernel and the initrd in the helper VM.

	  data to pithcat. This is needed because when pithcat is running,
	  every user can see the program's command line by using ps.
230

231 232 233 234
2012-09-15, v0.6

	  download a json file that contains the value for other os parameters
235 236
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs
	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
237

	  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.
