Subject: RFH: cloud-init -- configuration and customization of cloud instances
Date: Tue, 13 Nov 2012 09:04:57 +0900
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the cloud-init package.

The package description is:
 System to handle early initialization of a cloud instance. Cloud-init can for
 example set a default locale and a host name, generate SSH private host keys,
 add SSH keys to a user's .ssh/authorized_keys so they can log in, and set up
 ephemeral mount points.
 .
 Cloud-init's behavior can be configured via user-data, given by the user at
 instance launch time.

Cloud-init is a complex system written in Python, and I do not have much
experience in both.  I would like cloud-init to be maintained by a team
of skilled developers who are also experienced users.

See http://lists.debian.org/debian-cloud/2012/11/msg00003.html for a longer
call for help.

The source package is currently hosted by the Python Applications team,
but can be moved if need is.

Cheers,

-- 
Charles

One remark, the cloud-init package looks really linked to Amazon EC2 setup,
it does not set the init for other cloud environments (Rackspace?
OpenNebula). Don't you think the package should be named ec2-cloud-init ?
Or do we really expect this package to be multiple cloud provider compliant
(would need to know in this case which provider we want to target at image
generation)?
Even compatible APIs to extract user data (ssh keys..., ) need to connect
to a specific end point IP, which will differ between providers (and/or
zone). To face this last problem, it means that configuration is needed to
create the image (debian installer specific question for cloud?)

live-* does 95% of what cloud-init does already anyway. i'll look into
the remaining 5% at some point soon, which would actually make
cloud-init somewhat obsolete.

Hi Charles,
    I think I can help you with this package. In which state is the
package? I see an upload to experimental almost half a year ago but nothing
else.

Hi Ghe,

I uploaded to experimental because on one hand I could not test the package,
but on the other hand, I wanted to be able to use Debian's bugtracker and PTS,
and have more visibility to attract co-maintainers.

Now that Wheezy is frozen, and now that there are more eyes looking at the
package (see the debian-cloud mailing list), it would make sense to upload the
latest upstream release (0.7.1) to unstable.

Have a nice day,

Hi,

I'm closing this bug for now because I've took care of cloud-init
recently.
