live-tools (1:20171207) unstable; urgency=medium
* Improve update-initramfs wrapper to better handle unmatched
kernels and initrd images. Closes: #882769
The new logic also avoids copying initrd backup files. Closes: #838110

Closes: #831830 Thanks to Steven Shiau <> for the patch.

live-tools (1:20151214+nmu1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Add a native live-tools.service unit (Closes: #796627)
* Add dh-systemd build-dependency and use "--with systemd" for above.
* Source /lib/lsb/init-functions in init script
- fixes lintian warning: init.d-script-does-not-source-init-functions
which means if someone directly invokes the init script under
systemd then the systemd LSB hooks will redirect to systemctl.
* Add lsb-base dependency because of the above.
* Fix up path in init script to make it actually do something
(/bin/live-media-eject -> /bin/live-medium-eject)
Thanks to Felipe Sateler for spotting this.
