  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * apt-pkg/contrib/cdromutl.cc:
    - if apt-cdrom is used on writable media (like usb-sticks), do
      not use the root directory to identify the medium (as all
      changes there change the ident id). Use the .disk directory

    - null the valid string instead of the date if Valid-Until is not set
  * apt-pkg/acquire-item.cc:
    - use also unsigned Release files again (Closes: #596189)

  [ Christian Perrier ]
