 oem-config (1.0) edgy; urgency=low
   * Reorganise oem-config to have a reasonable frontend/backend separation,
     thereby allowing for a future KDE port. This involved updating much of
     the core to look more like ubiquity (since ubiquity's core was an
     evolution of oem-config's), and a new UI using a single window/notebook
     rather than a succession of dialogs.
   * Casualties of this work include the whole base-config-like menu
     structure and the include/exclude mechanism. The menu structure made it
     difficult to avoid spawning a new dialog for each step, which was a poor
     UI; I don't believe the include/exclude mechanism was heavily used, but
     contact me if you were relying on it and it may be possible to restore
     it in a new form.
   * I haven't yet ported the new i18n infrastructure from ubiquity, so the
     oem-config UI will be untranslated.
   * Like ubiquity, we now incorporate source for all d-i components we use
     under d-i/source/ and include them directly in our binary package,
     reducing the number of complex interdependencies with d-i packages.
     'debian/rules update' can be used to do automatic updates of these
     copied source packages.
   * Remove some leftover code that dealt with restoring the inittab, as we
     don't do the temporary inittab thing any more.
   * Fix kbd-chooser wrapper script to actually install the selected keymap
     (though only for the console at present).
   * Move from prebaseconfig to finish-install.
   * Make oem-config Architecture: any, since it now includes kbd-chooser
   * Add an oem-config-gtk package for the GTK frontend.
   * Convert to python-support.
   * Fix apt-install compatibility wrapper to use debconf's noninteractive
     frontend, tell debconf not to send e-mail, avoid upgrading, ignore GPG
     time conflicts, and suppress prompts.
   * Update localechooser wrapper to handle /etc/default/locale (based on
     localechooser 0.19) and to use /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED (based on
     localechooser 1.20ubuntu5).
   * Make more of an effort to display translated country names.
   * Use /bin/bash for user-setup due to a dash test(1) bug.
   * Language names are now sorted according to the local name for each
     language (closes: Malone #47724).
