Ubuntu Server development summary – 9 January 2018


Hello Ubuntu Server!

The purpose of this communication is to provide a status update and highlights for any interesting subjects from the Ubuntu Server Team. If you would like to reach the server team, you can find us at the #ubuntu-server channel on Freenode. Alternatively, you can sign up and use the Ubuntu Server Team mailing list.

Spotlight: cloud-init ec2 testing

The cloud-init team has extended their integration tests to allow coverage of the ec2 datasource. This is accomplished via the use of the boto3 python library. Weekly jobs run the tests against supported releases of Ubuntu as well as for proposed testing.

cloud-init

  • Fix cloud-init clean subcommand to unlink symlinks instead of calling del_dir (LP: #1741093)
  • Fixe traceback when attempting to bounce the network after hostname resets on Azure (LP: #1722668)

curtin

  • Moved Launchpad repo from bzr to git
