casper 1.422 source package in Ubuntu


casper (1.422) eoan; urgency=medium

  * Add support for url=protocol://path/to/installer.iso netboot
    option. Using this, one can netboot and complete installations using
    kernel and initrd from the new Ubuntu Server Installer using `ip=dhcp
    url=http://..../ubuntu-19.10-live-server-arch.iso' cmdline paratemers.
    This is not specific to Server installer, and should work for Ubuntu
    Desktop images too. Using this patch, successfully completed netboot
    installation with dhcp networking over vlan on a POWER9 machine.
