238

239 240 241 242
2012-09-15, v0.6

	  download a json file that contains the value for other os parameters
243 244
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs
	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
245

	  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.
