5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
7 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
9 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
10 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
11 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
13 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
16 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
17 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
19 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
20 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
21 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
23 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
24 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
25 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
26 some may still have eluded me.
28 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
30 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
32 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
35 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
36 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
37 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
38 from GLIInstallProfile.
40 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
41 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
43 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
45 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
47 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
48 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
49 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
51 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
52 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
53 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
55 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
56 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
57 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
59 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
61 can be resized.
63 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
64 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
65 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
67 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
68 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
69 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
71 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
72 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
73 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
74 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
75 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
77 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
79 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
80 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
81 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
83 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
85 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
86 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
87 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
88 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
89 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
90 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
91 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
93 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
95 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
96 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
97 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
98 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
99 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
100 Added initial unit test code.
102 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
104 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
105 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
106 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
