 choose-mirror (2.19ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
   * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
     - Use Ubuntu mirrors.
     - Ubuntu branding.
     - Set default country to GB.
     - Never ask mirror/suite, mark it untranslatable, and give it
       appropriate choices for Ubuntu.
     - Pick (for the country selected in the installer)
       as the default mirror.
     - Drop the priorities of the country/mirror questions to medium if we're
       installing from a CD that includes the base system.
     - Support setting OVERRIDE_BASE_INSTALLABLE in the environment to force
       choose-mirror to assume that the base system is installable.
     - Skip mirror validation if the base system is installable and we're
       installing from a mirror in the masterlist.
   * Stop checking if is reachable before asking for a
     proxy. This caused a number of very long delays on systems behind
     firewalls that dropped packets they didn't like rather than rejecting
     them. Furthermore, now that we have Ubiquity it is less important for
     Ubuntu's d-i to ask as few questions as possible, and more important for
     it to work correctly in corner cases.
   * Switch to gutsy by default.
   * Drop unsupported releases from mirror/suite Choices.

     transition period. Closes: #426303.
