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
