Recent revisions

54. By Evan on 2010-04-21

Notify user-setup that there is an encrypted home partition present
(LP: #566552).

53. By Colin Watson on 2010-04-15

Update Ubuntu-specific translations from Launchpad.

52. By Colin Watson on 2010-03-15

Mount /proc with nodev,noexec,nosuid.

51. By Colin Watson on 2010-02-02

* Stop adding removable devices to /etc/fstab, now that apt knows how to
  find CD-ROM devices using libudev (LP: #33512).
* Update translations of Ubuntu-specific strings from Launchpad.

50. By Colin Watson on 2009-10-27

Fix clearing of subdirectories of /usr and /var (LP: #461698).

49. By Evan on 2009-10-16

* Don't preseed nonexistent passwd/user-gid. Guard against setting a
  UID of 0 when /home is a separate partition (LP: #442998).
* Don't touch /usr/src, /var/local, and /usr/local when clearing
  partitions. Account for them existing in / (LP: #431993).

48. By Colin Watson on 2009-10-07

Merge debian/partman-target.install into debian/install, as otherwise
critical files in /lib/partman/choose_method don't get installed
(LP: #444804).

47. By Evan on 2009-10-05

Do not ever set the UID and GID for the to-be-created user to 0 in
clear_partitions (LP: #442998).

46. By Colin Watson on 2009-10-04

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Disable automatic mounting of USB removable devices.
  - Mount CD-ROMs and floppies with 'exec' and 'utf8'.
  - Use the path of the file associated with a loop device in /etc/fstab,
    rather than the filesystem's UUID or the loop device path.
  - Always set the loop option for loop devices.
  - Remove critical system files from the existing filesystem before
  - Preserve the UID and GID of the initial user, if possible. Requires a
    patch to user-setup.
  - Rather than pretending that partitions have no longer been formatted
    after the partitioner is complete, reset their intended state from
    "format the partition" to "keep and use the existing data". This still
    solves the original problem reported in Debian bug #256090 while also
    stopping partitions from being needlessly reformatted if you go back to
    the partitioner after base system installation and then forward again.
  - Don't clear partitions or complain about them not being formatted if
    they've already been formatted by a previous partitioner run.
  - Recommend blkid rather than vol_id in /etc/fstab.

45. By Colin Watson on 2009-09-01
