 grml-autoconfig - main bootup process of a grml system
 grml-autoconfig (0.8.24) unstable; urgency=low
   * Check for space after bootoption 'fast' so we do not conflict
     with new kernel bootoption fastboot.
   * New bootoption 'nostartx': if using startx as default bootoption
     the bootoption 'nostartx' disables automatic startup of X.
   * Apply patch by Marc Haber regarding re-work of debs, config
     and scripts handling (thanks a lot!):
     - debs, config and scripts are always searched and read from the
       same place ($dcs-dir). Which place this is varies, depending on
       GRMLCFG, noautoconfig and myconfig.
     - debs are searched in $dcs-dir/debs. If debs=foo is given, foo is
       taken as a shell wildcard for the debs being installed, paths are
       allowed and relative to $dcs-dir.
     - config archives (config.tbz) are searched directly in $dcs-dir. If
       config=foo is given and foo is a file, that file is unpacked and its
       content taken as configuration archive. If config=foo is given and foo
       is a directory, the contents of the directory tree is copied over the
       live CD configuration. paths are allowed and relative to $dcs-dir
     - scripts are searched in $dcs-dir/scripts. If scripts=foo is given
       and foo is a file, that file is executed. If scripts=foo is given and
       foo is a directory, all files inside that directory are executed.
       Paths are allowed and relative to $dcs-dir.
     - If no GRMLCFG partition is found and noautoconfig is _not_ given
       on the command line, nothing is changed and the dcs files are
       searched within the .iso, $dcs-dir is set to the root directory
       within the .iso
     - If a GRMLCFG partition is found, $dcs-dir is set to the root of
       the GRMLCFG partition unless noautoconfig is set. If noautoconfig is
       set, $dcs-dir is set to the root directory within the .iso.
     - If myconfig=foo is set on the command line, $dcs-dir is set to
       foo, even if a GRMLCFG partition is present.
     [Testing: issue715]
   * Drop config_cdrom_scripts(): the bootoption "script" is triggered
     by bootoption "scripts" and was never officially documented.
   * Switch wording from 'CD' to 'live mode' where possible.
   * Bump Build-Depends to debhelper >=5.
   * Bump Standard-Version to 3.8.2 (no further changes).
   * Use invoke-rc.d for starting network instead of invoking the
     init script directly.
   * Add LSB header to init script grml-autoconfig.strace.
   * Add placeholder functions for start/restart/reload/stop to
   * Adjust copyright file (add reference to GPL-2, adjust year).
