Re: [atomic-devel] ISO for cloud-init

Hi, thanks.  What i'm seeing isn't very straight forward, with no working example.  looks like a weak point with atomic, all the configuration has to be done manually each time, aside from setting the user passwords and a few basic changes.

More work needs to be done here for it to be useful to most people.  Say, for example if user-data had a simple command to call a script that was included in the ISO, something that easy would make so much sense.

that.  I'll keep googling for examples I guess, just thought i'd check
here first.

If you format the user-data file as MIME multipart, you can embed both a cloud-config section and a shell script.

The multipart format is a little annoying to set up, but here's a helper script:
