31. By Brian Murray on 2009-08-28

Remove link to kerneltraffic.org since it no longer contains any
linux kernel information (LP: #415108)

30. By Colin Watson on 2009-07-15

* Document how to override the weak password check.
* Disable building for hppa, since it's EOL.

29. By Colin Watson on 2009-04-16

* Document pkgsel/updatedb (LP: #8195).
* Document partman/default_filesystem.
* Document controlling how partitions are mounted (LP: #347817).
* Mention that Kickstart LVM configuration is now experimentally
  supported, and document the pieces currently known to be missing.
* Update Canonical's copyright years.

28. By Colin Watson on 2009-03-05

* Document new scheme for preseeding the use of CC.archive.ubuntu.com
  mirrors (LP: #18225).
* Bump kernelversion to 2.6.28.

27. By Colin Watson on 2009-03-05

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Build only English (for now, until we figure out how to avoid trashing
    translations quite so badly with Ubuntu branding etc.).
  - Build only Ubuntu architectures (amd64, hppa, i386, ia64, lpia,
    powerpc, sparc).
  - Extensive (although possibly incomplete) Ubuntu branding, adjustments
    for our mirror layout, etc.
  - Add "Ubuntu and Debian" and "What is Ubuntu?" section, text borrowed
    from the Ubuntu web site. Disable the "What is Debian GNU/Linux?"
    section.
  - Direct installation reports to ubuntu-users for now.
  - Adjust various memory and disk space requirements. Talk about the
    default Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu tasks rather than Debian tasks.
  - Document mounting /sys in various places.
  - Unset supports-floppy-boot for all our architectures.
  - Add a few more supports-floppy-boot and bootable-usb conditionals.
  - Document our root password and sudo arrangements.
  - Document netboot-style USB images. Still mention the hd-media images,
    but they're downplayed since many USB sticks are too small for a full
    Ubuntu ISO image.
  - Document Kickstart installations (currently only the basics, a
    reference to Red Hat's documentation, and the differences from
    Anaconda).
  - Update keyboard preseeding documentation for console-setup.
  - Update chroot-install guide for console-setup and language packs; add
    a bit more advice about installing grub.
  - Disable documentation of win32-loader.
  - Document new simplified partman preseeding.
  - Document mirror/udeb/components.
  - Document apt-setup/security_path.
  - Don't recommend passing http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu to
    debootstrap.
  - Document partman/early_command.
  - Document pkgsel/update-policy.
* Document that values for Kickstart's preseed command containing spaces
  must be quoted.
* Document pkgsel/install-recommends.
* Replace documentation on preseeding user-setup's encrypted private
  directory facility with documentation on preseeding its new home
  directory encryption facility (LP: #323174).
* Improve examples of tasksel/first preseeding to avoid mentioning
  standard, which is installed by default.
* Document partman-auto-lvm/guided_size.

Document pkgsel/update-policy.

24. By Colin Watson on 2008-08-18

* Don't recommend passing http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu to debootstrap;
  it can figure out a good default for itself, and that URL is wrong for
  ports architectures (see
  https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/debian-installer/+question/38180).
* Document partman/early_command.
* Build installation-guide-lpia package.

23. By Colin Watson on 2008-06-23
