 partman-base (110ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
   * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
     - Ubiquity integration: If PARTMAN_NO_COMMIT is set, then exit rather
       than running commit.d and finish.d scripts; add a partman-commit
       script; dump extra information to /var/lib/partman/snoop if
       PARTMAN_SNOOP is set.

   * Resolve symlinks before looking up devices in /proc/swaps.
   * Minor read_list optimisation using a ${parameter:+word} expansion.
   * Optimise humandev cciss handling a little, fixing a shell syntax error
     along the way that created a file called "15" rather than checking
     whether $lun was greater than 15.
   * Use 'mkdir -p' rather than more awkward test-then-create constructions.
   * If devices are passed as command-line arguments to parted_devices,
     iterate over them rather than over the list of devices probed by
     libparted. This can be useful to support devices that libparted would
     not normally probe automatically, such as loop devices. (Read-only
     devices, CDs, and floppies are still skipped.)
   * Use expr rather than shell arithmetic in human2longint, to avoid relying
     on 64-bit shell arithmetic.
   * Use MS-DOS label by default on Cell platforms.
   [ Anton Zinoviev ]
   * Simplify the logic of the main partman script.  Rename auto.d to
   * Compute some variables only once to make things faster:
     - can_escape: whether debconf can escape only once.
     - debconf_select_lead: can we use NBSP on the terminal
