+ Previously, the following list of packages were removed

+ <link linkend='var-IMAGE_FEATURES'><filename>IMAGE_FEATURES</filename></link>,
+ regardless of any dependencies:
+ <literallayout class='monospaced'>
+ update-rc.d
+ base-passwd
+ shadow
+ update-alternatives
+ run-postinsts
+ </literallayout>
+ With the Yocto Project 2.1 release, these packages are only
+ removed if "read-only-rootfs" is in
+ <filename>IMAGE_FEATURES</filename>, since they might
+ still be needed for a read-write image even in the absence
+ of a package manager (e.g. if users need to be added,
+ modified, or removed at runtime).
