Jasper is a tool to configure preinstalled ext2/3 images that were
created using the ubuntu infrastructure from the initramfs.
Such as armel omap3/4 images in Ubuntu 10.10 and beyond.
It grows the system partition of a preinstalled ext2/3 image to the
full size of the SD card, configures fstab, loopback networking, adds
the UUID to the kernel cmdline and properly sets up flash-kernel for
the kernel package post installation scripts.

* Change default /proc mount options to mirror what's used by
other installers, and tidy up header as well (LP: #985309)

jasper-initramfs (0.67) precise; urgency=low
* remove TI PPA stuff, it is handled via the ti-omap4-ppa package in precise
2011-10-05 - Adam Conrad <adconrad@ubuntu.com>
jasper-initramfs (0.66) oneiric; urgency=low
* Point ppa/ti-omap4-ppa.list to oneiric instead of natty.

jasper-initramfs (0.65) oneiric; urgency=low
* Rewrite the enable_omap4_ppa() function in jasper_setup:
- Improve readability and maintainability a bit with split lines
- Fix a minor bug where the whole installer stopped functioning
because we were trying to act on files that didn't exist.

jasper-initramfs (0.64) oneiric; urgency=low
* switch the TI PPA installer from gnome-open to xdg-open
* move to dconf for adding the TI icon to favorites

jasper-initramfs (0.63) oneiric; urgency=low
* scripts/local-premount/jasper_growroot: Set the VFAT partition's
label to SERVICEV001 to hide it from  automounting tools.  We do
this at install time rather than  image-creation time, so that
users can more easily mangle their boot setup before installation.
* scripts/local-premount/jasper_growroot: Fix up two spots where
we were logging to console/plymouth but  not to the filesystem.
2011-09-20 - Adam Conrad <adconrad@ubuntu.com>
jasper-initramfs (0.62) oneiric; urgency=low
* Change the sfdisk grep in jasper_growroot to actually find the
root partition based on a string that might actually match.
2011-09-20 - Jani Monoses <jani@ubuntu.com>
jasper-initramfs (0.61) oneiric; urgency=low
* Set up correct partition numbers and uboot script for MX53
2011-09-19 - Adam Conrad <adconrad@ubuntu.com>
jasper-initramfs (0.60) oneiric; urgency=low
* ROOTPART refers to the name of the device node, not the full
path, so fix up our querying it to actually find it correctly.
* Switch from using fstype to blkid while fixing the above.
