partman-target (83ubuntu1) saucy; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Disable automatic mounting of USB removable devices.
    - Mount floppies with 'exec' and 'utf8'.
    - Use the path of the file associated with a loop device in /etc/fstab,
      rather than the filesystem's UUID or the loop device path.
    - Always set the loop option for loop devices.
    - Remove critical system files from the existing filesystem before
      installing.
    - Preserve the UID and GID of the initial user, if possible.  Requires a
      patch to user-setup.
    - Check that all system partitions are formatted.
    - Stop adding removable devices to /etc/fstab, now that apt knows how to
      find CD-ROM devices using libudev.
    - Notify user-setup if there is an encrypted home partition present.
    - Stop creating /var/run and /var/lock on the root filesystem, now that
      these are symlinks into /run.

  * Exit 0 at the end of finish.d/clear_partitions, so that partman-commit

  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Use UUID= fstab syntax for all partitions if a UUID is available, and
      add a comment above each UUID to indicate the corresponding device at
      install time.
    - Disable automatic mounting of USB removable devices.
    - Don't use UUIDs in fstab for those device types that volumeid.postinst
      refuses to convert.
    - Mount CD-ROMs and floppies with 'exec'.
    - Use the path of the file associated with a loop device in /etc/fstab,
      rather than the filesystem's UUID or the loop device path.
    - Always set the loop option for loop devices.
    - Remove critical system files from the existing filesystem before

    - Preserve the UID and GID of the initial user, if possible.  Requires a
      patch to user-setup.
    - Mount CD-ROMs and floppies with the "utf8" option by default.
    - Check that /media is on the root file system, since the installer
      relies on being able to mount things like /media/cdrom during
      installation.
    - Expand comment above each UUID-mounted partition, based on a suggestion
      by Daniel Pocock in Debian #509378.
    - Add a note about 'vol_id --uuid' to the top of /etc/fstab.
    - Fix disk_containing function to use its argument rather than relying
      on $dev.
    - Fix use of udevinfo rather than udevadm info when checking if a disk is
      USB.
    - Escape spaces, tabs, newlines, and backslashes in fstab according to
      the procedure described in getmntent(3).
    - Issue an error message if two file systems are assigned the same
      label.
    - Improve fstab comments for partitions without mount points (e.g. swap).
    - Rather than pretending that partitions have no longer been formatted
      after the partitioner is complete, reset their intended state from

  * Rather than pretending that partitions have no longer been formatted
    after the partitioner is complete, reset their intended state from
    "format the partition" to "keep and use the existing data". This still
    solves the original problem reported in Debian bug #256090 while also
    stopping partitions from being needlessly reformatted if you go back to
    the partitioner after base system installation and then forward again
    (LP: #29712).
  * Don't clear partitions or complain about them not being formatted if

  * Introduce partman/mount_style (choices: traditional, label, uuid) to
    allow controlling how filesystems are mounted. Default this to uuid, and
    stop using labels by default since they have unavoidable problems with
    removable disks (LP: #347817).
