35. By Colin Watson on 2010-06-25

* 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, armel, i386, ia64, powerpc,
  - 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?"
  - 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
  - Update keyboard preseeding documentation for console-setup.

  - Disable documentation of win32-loader.
  - Document new simplified partman preseeding.
  - Document mirror/udeb/components.
  - Document apt-setup/security_path.

    standard, which is installed by default.
  - Document partman-auto-lvm/guided_size.
  - Document scheme for preseeding the use of CC.archive.ubuntu.com
  - Document pkgsel/updatedb.
  - Document partman/default_filesystem.
  - Document how to override the weak password check.
  - Remove comments about automatic installation methods that have been
    removed from Ubuntu.
  - Remove documentation of
    base-installer/kernel/linux/initramfs-generators; setting this to
    anything other than the default will cause the installer to fail.
