  * Fix ltsp-shutdown, ltsp-restart and ltsp-cluster-info to use TryExec and
    the correct gnome-session script. (LP: #1062947)
  * Re-order ltsp-update-image to the tftp after the image. (LP: #1048689)
  * Fix jetpipe to do the daemoning itself rather than use the non-working
    python-daemon code. (LP: #996533)
