As per the discussions during debconf, to be called "official", the
images have to be built:
- directly from an unmodified stable
- with reproducibility on any Debian computer (ie: no need for any
external infrastructure access)
If things are taken from backports, then this *must* be made explicit.
Best would also be if the images could be built together with the rest
of the debian-cd infrastructure.
That being said, I'd love to have our release team be more liberal on
updates of cloud stuff. Cloud-init for example, has an open bug for
MONTHS which we are stuck on.
