Name        : cobbler

Version     : 2.4.0
Release     : beta3.fc18.1

Summary     : Boot server configurator
Description :

Cobbler is a network install server.  Cobbler supports PXE,
virtualized installs, and re-installing existing Linux machines.  The
last two modes use a helper tool, 'koan', that integrates with
cobbler.  There is also a web interface 'cobbler-web'.  Cobbler's
advanced features include importing distributions from DVDs and rsync
mirrors, kickstart templating, integrated yum mirroring, and built-in
DHCP/DNS Management.  Cobbler has a XMLRPC API for integration with
other applications.

  prevent net boot looping   - cobbler status reflects debian installations   -
  preseed file is downloaded a nd saved on the installed system as
  /var/log/cobbler.seed Also made download_config_files_deb snippet, make use
  of late_command New post_run_deb snippet allows to execute post installation
  script. (flaks at bnl.gov)

  (isaoshimizu at gmail.com)
- Modern x86 kernels have 2048 char limit and this is needed to support
  configurations with kickstart+NIC kernel params. Otherwise koan refuses to
  accept the param list. (oliver at cpan.org)
- Allow koan's -S option to work for SuSE breed. Also remove -S for breed=None,
  as I assume "Red Hat" is not a sane assumption for all Distros without a
  breed. (oliver at cpan.org)
- Only add a udev net rule for an interface if the MAC is set. This fixes
  behaviour whereby a dummy udev rule at eth0 forces the first NIC to get eth1
  post-install. (oliver at cpan.org)
- Make the domainname setting be the full eth0 DNS Name, minus the first dotted
  part (and not the FQDN). (oliver at cpan.org)

  (jthiltges2 at unl.edu)
- Refactor PXE and GRUB menu item creation into a separate function
  (jthiltges2 at unl.edu)
- django 1.4 and later have deprecated the old TEMPLATE_LOADERS and replaced
  them with a new app_directories.Loader (oliver at cpan.org)
- Add support for UEFI boot to the subnet, but not for defined systems yet.
  (erinn.looneytriggs at gmail.com)
- Fix redhat import whitelist for Fedora 17 (jimi at sngx.net)
- Fix unittest on the case of haven't virt-install libs. (daikame at gmail.com)
- os_version for debian should be similar to ubunty for virt-install to work
  changed tree in app.py so that I can use debian mirror different from cobbler
  server (flaks at bnl.gov)
- fedora 17 changed the output of ifconfig command. This will make IFNAME set
  in snippets again (flaks at bnl.gov)
- remove edit for now (flaks at bnl.gov)

- [BUGFIX] template errors can hit an exception path that references an
  undefined variable (jimi at sngx.net)

  the except clause causes an UnboundLocalError when it tries to reference
  inum. (joshua at azariah.com)
