Bug#572022: prompts for udev 70-persistent-cd.rules changes without actually changing anything
Package: linux-base
Version: 2.6.33-1~experimental.2
Severity: minor


as Ben was calling for testers of the linux-base package here is some
feedback :-)

I have to add, that I've been using a self-compiled kernel for some time
(using libata) and converted fstab etc. to use LABEL= entries manually
quite some time ago.

During the installation, linux-base prompted me if I wanted to convert
any config files and I answered with yes. It then showed a message that
it detected some outdated udev rules file (70-persistent-cd.rules) which
it would update. I was a bit surprised by that, as I didn't expect
anything to need updating in that regarding.

And indeed, after the upgrade, I ran a diff on 70-persistent-cd.rules
and 70-persistent-cd.rules.old, and the files are identical.

I've attached the relevant file for reference.

Other than that, I didn't notice any breakage or strange behaviour.
