Fixes in 2.5RC2 vs. 2.5RC1

  • The workspace-control scp_user_override configuration has been removed, it is no longer relevant with the propagation external/internal namespace changes.

  • nimbusctl now has no output options, all activity is always logged to files so these were misleading.

  • nimbusctl can now launch with an alternative trusted CA directory more easily. Addresses Bug 7071.

  • installation messages at end of installer are different [0]

  • nimbus-new-user didn't respect its "--group" argument.
