    - add: parted-do-not-warn-when-shrinking-in-script-mode.patch
* Wed Feb 11 2015
  - Update to parted-3.2; Notable changes:
    - Added new partition type flag, esp, to set the type to 0xEF on
      MS-DOS.  Also aliased to boot on GPT to set the UEFI ESP GUID.
    - You can now choose to ignore errors about partitions that
      overlap, or are longer than the disk.  This allows you to use
      parted to repair the problem.
    - When attempting to manipulate a mounted partition, parted now
      issues a warning that you can choose to ignore, instead of an
    - When creating a loop label, it automatically comes with a
      partition using the whole disk.
    - parted -l no longer lists device-mapper devices other than
      dmraid whole disks.
    - Added new Linux-specific partition GUID type code
      (0FC63DAF-8483-4772-8E79-3D69D8477DE4) for Linux filesystem
      data on GPT disks.  This type code is now assigned as the
      default partition type code for new partitions holding Linux
    - Added new "msftdata" flag to identify partitions holding NTFS
      or FAT filesystems on GPT disks.  This flag corresponds to a
      GPT type code of EBD0A0A2-B9E5-4433-87C0-68B6B72699C7
      ("Microsoft Basic Data").  Since Linux filesystem partitions
      formerly used this type code, this flag may optionally be set
      on Linux partitions to make the partition table type codes
      match former configurations in case the new Linux filesystem
      type code causes problems with some utility.  Note that this
      flag cannot be removed from NTFS or FAT partitions within
      parted except by setting a competing flag, such as "boot"
      (which sets the type code used by EFI System partitions) or
      "msftres" (which sets the "Microsoft Reserved" type code).

* Wed Jan 08 2014
  - update to parted-3.1 (fate#316110)
  - changes in parted-3.1:
    * Changes in behavior
    - Floppy drives are no longer scanned on linux: they cannot be
      partitioned anyhow, and some users have a misconfigured BIOS
      that claims to have a floppy when they don't, and scanning
      gets hung up.
    - parted: the mkpart command has changed semantics with regard
      to specifying the end of the partition.  If the end is
      specified using units of MiB, GiB, etc., parted subtracts one
      sector from the specified value.  With this change, it is now
      possible to create partitions like 1MiB-2MiB, 2MiB-3MiB and
      so on.
    * Many bugfixes (see changelog)
  - changes in parted-3.0:
    * Changes in behavior
    - Remove all FS-related (file system-related) sub-commands;
      these commands are no longer recognized because they were all
      dependent on parted "knowing" too much about file system:
      mkpartfs, mkfs, cp, move, check.
    - 'resize' command changed semantics:
      it no longer resizes the filesystem, but only moves end
      sector of the partition
  - libparted-devel contains libparted-fs-resize library
  - add ability to change size of the partition (ignoring contained
    filesystem) with 'resize' command; this command has different
    semantics than the former 'resize' command which upstream
    decided to drop
    - parted-resize-command.patch (fate#316110)
  - when using syncmbr on POWER, make the first partition type 0x41
    (PReP boot) (bnc#797485)
    - add libparted-ppc-prepboot-in-syncmbr.patch
  - support for PReP GUID (bnc#797485)

  - Disable automake silent rules
* Thu May 19 2011
  - update to parted-2.4
    * Bug fixes
    - parted no longer allows the modification of certain in-use
      partitions.  In particular, before this fix, parted would
      permit removal or modification of any in-use partition on a
      dmraid and any in-use partition beyond the 15th on a regular
      scsi disk.
    - Improve support of DASD devices on the s390 architecture.
      Parted now supports all DASD types (CKD and FBA), DASD formats
      (CDL, LDL, CMS non-reserved, and CMS reserved), and DASD
      drivers (ECKD, FBA, and DIAG) in all combinations supported by
      the Linux kernel.  As before, only CDL format on CKD DASD using
      the ECKD driver is supported for read-write operations (create,
      delete, move, re-size, etc.).  However, the implicit partition
      present on LDL- and CMS-formatted disks is now correctly
      recognized for read-only operations.  In detail:
    - parted now correctly handles LDL-format disks with a block
      size other than 4096 (bug fix)
    - parted now recognizes the CMS disk format, both reserved and
      non-reserved (enhancement)
    - parted now supports FBA DASD devices (enhancement)
    - parted now supports the DIAG driver when running in a virtual
      machine under z/VM (enhancement)
    - libparted: raise the limit on the maximum start sector and the
      maximum number of sectors in a "loop" partition table from 2^32
      to 2^64.
    - libparted once again recognizes a whole-disk FAT partition
    - libparted now recognizes scsi disks with a high major (128-135)
      as scsi disks
    - an msdos partition table on a very small device (smaller than
      one cylinder) is now recognized.
    - libparted: zero-length devices (other than files) are ignored
      rather than throwing an exception.
    - libparted: gpt label creation can no longer divide by zero with
      a defective device or when a concurrent writer modifies the
      PE-size bytes in the small interval between the write and
      subsequent read of the primary GPT header.
    * Changes in behavior
    - "parted $dev print" now prints information about the device
      (model, size, transport, sector size) even when it fails to
      recognize the disk label.
    - specifying partition start or end values using MiB, GiB, etc.
      suffixes now makes parted do what I want, i.e., use that
      precise value, and not some other that is up to 500KiB or
      500MiB away from what I specified.  Before, to get that
      behavior, you would have had to use carefully chosen values
      with units of bytes ("B") or sectors ("s") to obtain the same
      result, and with sectors, your usage would not be portable
      between devices with varying sector sizes.  This change does
      not affect how parted handles suffixes like KB, MB, GB, etc.

  - update to parted-2.3
    - parted now recognizes ATA over Ethernet (AoE) devices
    - parted now recognizes Linux Software RAID Arrays
    - libparted has a new partition flag to check for diagnostic
      (aka recovery or reserved) partitions: PED_PARTITION_DIAG
    - When libparted deferenced a /dev/mapper/foo symlink, it would
      keep the resulting /dev/dm-N name and sometimes use it later,
      even though it had since become stale and invalid.
      It no longer stores the result of dereferencing a /dev/mapper
    - libparted's msdos_partition_is_flag_available function now
      always reports that the "hidden" flag is not available for
      an extended partition. Similarly,
      msdos_partition_get_flag(p,PED_PARTITION_HIDDEN) always
      returns 0 for an extended partition.
    - libparted uses a more accurate heuristic to distinguish between
      ext4 and ext3 partitions.
    - libparted now properly checks the return value of dm_task_run
      when operating on devicemapper devices.
    - allow using ped_device_cache_remove(dev) followed by a (later)
      ped_device_destroy() without corrupting the device cache.
    - when creating an ext2 file system, Parted no longer creates an
      invalid one when its size is 2TiB or larger.

  - update to parted-2.2
    - Changes in behavior
    - The default alignment (--align option) for newly created
      partitions has been changed to optimal.
    - New features
    - The ped_device_get_*_alignment() functions now return a sane
      default value instead of NULL when the so called topology
      information is incomplete.  The default minimum alignment aligns
      to physical sector size, the default optimal alignment is 1MiB,
      which is what vista and windows 7 do.
    - Bug fixes
    - Parted no longer uses a physical sector size of 0 or of any
      other value smaller than the logical sector size.
    - dos: creating an HFS or HFS+ partition in an msdos partition
      table used to set the partition type to 0x83.  That is wrong.
      The required number is 0xaf, and that is what is used now.
    - gpt: read-only operation could clobber MBR part of hybrid
      GPT+MBR table [bug introduced in parted-2.1]
    - gpt: a read-only operation like "parted $dev print" would
      overwrite $dev's protective MBR when exactly one of the primary
      and backup GPT tables was found to be corrupt.  [bug introduced
      prior to parted-1.8.0]
    - sun: the version, sanity and nparts VTOC fields were ignored by
      libparted.  Those fields are properly initialized now. The
      nparts (number of partitions) field is initialized to 8 (max.
      number of sun partitions) rather that to a real number of
      partitions. This solution is compatible with Linux kernel and
      Linux fdisk.
    - libparted: try harder to inform kernel of partition changes.
      Previously when editing partitions, occasionally the kernel
      would fail to be informed of partition changes.  When this
      happened future problems would occur because the kernel had
      incorrect information.  For example, if this problem arose when
      resizing or creating a new partition, then an incorrect
      partition size might be displayed or a user might encounter a
      failure to format or delete a newly created partition,
    - libparted: committing a disk that was returned by
      ped_disk_duplicate would always result in ped_disk_clobber being
      called (and thus the first and last 9KiB of the disk being
      zeroed), even if the duplicated disk, was not returned by
  - drop do-not-install-test-programs.patch (fixed in upstream)
* Wed Feb 17 2010
  - add do-not-install-test-programs.patch
    - avoid deleting this in specfile
* Mon Feb 01 2010
  - update to parted-2.1 (noteworthy changes)
    * New features
    - new --align=<align> commandline option which can have the
      following values:
    - none: Use the minimum alignment allowed by the disk type
    - cylinder: Align partitions to cylinders (the default)
    - minimal:  Use minimum alignment as given by the disk
      topology information
    - optimal:  Use optimum alignment as given by the disk
      topology information
      The minimal and optimal values will use layout information
      provided by the disk to align the logical partition table
      addresses to actual physical blocks on the disks. The minimal
      value uses the minimum alignment needed to align the partition
      properly to physical blocks, which avoids performance
      degradation. Where as the optimal value uses a multiple of the
      physical block size in a way that guarantees optimal
      performance.  The min and opt values will only work when
      compiled with libblkid >= 2.17 and running on a kernel >=
      2.6.31, otherwise they will behave as the none --align value.
    - Parted now supports disks with sector size larger than 512 bytes.
      Before this release, parted could operate only on disks with a
    sector size of 512 bytes. However, disk manufacturers are
    already making disks with an exposed hardware sector size of
    4096 bytes. Prior versions of parted cannot even read a
    partition table on such a device, not to mention create or
    manipulate existing partition tables. Due to internal design
    and time constraints, the following less-common partition
    table types are currently disabled:
    - amiga, bsd, aix, pc98
    - new command "align-check TYPE N" to determine whether the
    starting sector of partition N is
    TYPE(minimal|optimal)-aligned for the disk.  The same
    libblkid and kernel version requirements apply as for --align
    * Bug fixes
    - parted can once again create partition tables on loop devices.
    - improved >512-byte sector support
    - gpt tables are more rigorously checked
    - improved dasd disk support
    - handle device nodes created by lvm built with udev
      synchronisation enabled properly.
    - when printing tables, parted no longer truncates flag names
    - Partitions in a GPT table are no longer assigned the
    "microsoft reserved partition" type.  Before this change,
    each partition would be listed with a type of "msftres" by
    * Notice
    - Parted stopped using BLKPG_* ioctls to inform the kernel
    about changes of the partition table. The consequence of this
    change is that parted alone can no longer inform the kernel
    about changes to partition table on a disk where some of the
    partitions are mounted.

  - update to parted-1.9.0
    * bugfixes:
    * parted now preserves the protective MBR (PMBR) in GPT type
    * gpt_read now uses SizeOfPartitionEntry instead of the size
    of GuidPartitionEntry_t. This ensures that *all* of the
    partition entries are correctly read.
    * mklabel (interactive mode) now correctly asks for
    confirmation, when replacing an existent label, without
    outputting an error message.
    * resize now handles FAT16 file systems with a 64k cluster.
    This configuration is not common, but it is possible.
    * parted now ignores devices of the type /dev/md* when
    probing.  These types of devices should be handled by the
    device-mapper capabilities of parted.
    * The parted documentation now describes the differences in
    the options passed to mkpart for the label types.
    * changes in behavior
    * In libparted, the linux-swap "filesystem" types are now
    called "linux-swap(v0)" and "linux-swap(v1)" rather than
    "linux-swap(old)" and "linux-swap(new)" as in parted 1.8, or
    "linux-swap" as in older versions; "old" and "new" generally
    make poor names, and v1 is the only format supported by
    current Linux kernels. Aliases for all previous names are
