livecd-rootfs 2.408.23 source package in Ubuntu


livecd-rootfs (2.408.23) xenial; urgency=medium

  [ Gary Wang ]
  * Add the IMAGEFORMAT=none to support generating a single rootfs
    (LP: #1730642)

  [ Christopher Glass (Ubuntu) ]
  * Backport "minimized round 2" changes from trunk to Xenial (LP: #1731492)
  * Remove apt, debconf, dpkg cruft files from /var/cache and /var/lib in
    all our livefses.
  * Pass --cache false to lb config; otherwise we copy around caches of
    .debs that are never used properly, and which prevent us from emptying
    /var/cache/apt in images.
  * When building minimized cloud images, remove various packages that we
    don't want installed by default.  Some are tools that aren't needed for
    non-interactive use; some are libraries whose reverse-dependencies
    will have already been removed; and one, open-vm-tools, should only be
    included in images that are targeted to VMWare (which is not the case
    for any of the current minimal images), rather than being included
    directly in the cloud-image seed.
