Spotlight: Cloud-Init upstream has moved to to GitHub!

https://github.com/canonical/cloud-init

For new contributors, please see the HACKING documentation.

For existing contributors who’ve already signed the Canonical Contributors License Agreement, we can verify the link between your Launchpad account and your GitHub account by creating a branch with both your Launchpad and GitHub usernames into both Launchpad and GitHub cloud-init repositories.

The cloud-init Launchpad project will keep an up-to-date mirror of the official GitHub repository.

Bugs and issues will still be maintained in Launchpad
