casper 1.455 source package in Ubuntu


casper (1.455) groovy; urgency=medium

  * Use a tmpfs in tests; overlay is not compatible with zfs.
  * Make tests work when host kernel does not match that in the test env.
  * Properly handle echo -e for dash vs busybox in initramfs.
  * Limit our dd to only change 16 bytes in the MBR regardless of input,
    to avoid major damage from any future shell bugs.
