livecd-rootfs (2.408.21) xenial; urgency=medium

  [ Balint Reczey ]
  * Use kvm kernel only on amd64.
  * Make non-x86 minimized images consistent with x86 by not explicitly
    installing the server task.
  * Clean up dangling /boot/initrd.img symlink left behind on minimized

livecd-rootfs (2.408.20) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Now that grub-related diversions have been factored out in 2.466
    instead of having bogus root=stuff arg generated in grub.cfg, it is
    actually empty. Therefore update the sed command to make the arg in
    the root= token optional. This should resolve non-booting livecd cpc

livecd-rootfs (2.408.19) xenial; urgency=medium

  [ Nishanth Aravamudan ]
  * live-build/ubuntu-cpc/hooks/061-open-iscsi.chroot: generate iSCSI
    Initiator Name at first iscsid run for cloud images to ensure it is
    unique (LP: #1444992).

  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * Improve teardown_mountpoint to recursively find all submounts and
    unmount them, instead of working from a hard-coded list.  This makes
    the code resilient against other submounts being added later, including
    downstream.  LP: #1721279.
  * Also nuke the sleep / udevadm settle calls in the process, which should
    never be required and slow down the builds.
  * Fix a reference to an undefined variable in a script that's set -u.
  * Use /bin/sh, not /bin/bash, for autopkgtest.
  * debian/tests/default-bootstraps: minor adjustments to shell syntax,
    syncing with artful where this originated.

  [ Steve Langasek, Balint Reczey ]
  * Introduce a new project-independent 'minimized' subproject
    (LP: #1721261):
    - omit ubuntu-minimal in favor of using only the minbase package set.
    - boot directly by partuuid, avoiding the use of an initramfs.
    - Bump needed live-build version which can build images without initrd
    - drop man pages and most of the documentation from minimized images
      (/usr/share/doc/*/copyright and changelog.Debian.gz files are still
    - Add unminimize script for reverting minimization on a running system
    - Mention unminimize script in motd
    - Run autopkgtest for SUBPROJECT=minimized
    - If we're using SUBPROJECT=minimized, and tzdata is not installed,
      remove files that have been left behind.  This is a workaround for a
      bug that should be fixed in tzdata.
  * Factor out grub-related diversions and use them consistently, so we
    don't end up with wrong os-probe output in our grub.cfg.

  [ Balint Reczey ]
  * Mount using --make-rslave to ensure safe unmounts for rbind mounts
  * When SUBPROJECT environment variable is not set assume it to be ""
