console-setup (1.15ubuntu1) gutsy; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian (LP: #94177). Remaining changes:
    - Use keymapper to generate decision trees for a restricted subset of
      the pc105 model.
    - If the detect-keyboard debconf plugin is available
      (cdebconf-newt-detect-keys in the installer), then offer to use it to
      detect the keyboard layout.
    - Ship (as and kbdnames-maker in
    - Only default to Canadian layout for fr_CA; use U.S. English for other
      *_CA locales.
    - Fix default layout for Bosnian and default variant for Hindi.
    - Set default charmap for d-i to UTF-8.
    - Remove unhelpful defaults for several questions.
    - Adjust the default keyboard model for Brazilian and Japanese layouts.
    - Allow preseeding of console-setup/modelcode, console-setup/layoutcode,
      console-setup/variantcode, console-setup/optionscode, and
    - Use jp(latin),jp rather than us,jp by default for Japanese.
    - Reset console-setup/toggle to the default if it's set to "No toggling"
      and you select a non-Latin layout.
    - Change the default font from Terminus to VGA where supported.
    - Add a few bits of installer integration to console-setup-udeb borrowed
      from kbd-chooser.
    - console-setup Depends: perl; something in ckbcomp is causing perl to
      'use utf8' implicitly, and some of the necessary modules aren't in
    - Run kbd_mode on each tty in ACTIVE_CONSOLES rather than on the current
      tty, since the current tty might belong to X and changing X's tty out
      of raw mode is a very bad idea.
    - Map fr_CH to ch(fr) (Swiss French).
    - Fix codeset question priority for Esperanto.
    - Automatically save the font and keymap to /etc in
      /etc/init.d/console-setup if it isn't being run from init. Similarly,
      ensure that the font and keymap are saved to /etc during initial
    - Disable workaround in ckbcomp for the kernel not applying Caps Lock to
      non-ASCII letters, except for Turkish layouts; the cure is worse than
      the disease because it makes Caps Lock equivalent to Shift Lock.
    - Add a --save-only option to setupcon, to save the keyboard/font on the
      root filesystem but not actually tell the kernel to set it up. Use it
      to make sure the font is available on the root filesystem for the next
      boot but not to load it immediately, avoiding console manipulation
      when X or usplash is running.
    - Set keymap and font in the initramfs if possible.
    - Add lt to list of non-Latin keymaps.
    - Set default variant for French to oss.
    - Fix handling of commas in layout and variant names.
    - Fix keymap reduction not to try to express keymap A in terms of keymap
      B when B includes keys not mapped by A.
    - Source debconf confmodule earlier in postinst.
    - Fix horrible confusion if the locale has no supported default codeset.
    - Fix console-setup/codeset default to be one of the available choices.
    - Don't set an AltGr key by default for US layouts.
    - Add amiga, ataritt, sun4, and sun5 models, since they are used as
      defaults on certain architectures.
    - Map keycode 133 to AT scancode 124 for Japanese.
  * debian/config.proto: Set sparc default model to pc105 (LP: #105595).
  * debian/control: Multiply Installer-Menu-Item number by 100.
  * debian/control: Remove outdated note about loadkeys in
    console-setup-udeb's description.
  * debian/console-setup.postinst: Drop font fixups for upgrades from
    development versions of Edgy.
