Hi James and everybody,

in order to experience myself with parsing remote JSON data, I have copied the
mapping of image identifiers of Cloud/AmazonEC2Image/Squeeze to

Here is what I added to the Cloud/AmazonEC2Image/Squeeze page.

    It is planned to provide a machine-readable version of the above list of
    images. For the sake of the brainstorm, a JSON version is temporarly placed at
    Cloud/AmazonEC2Image/Squeeze/JSON. However, the structure is very likely to
    change, see #694035 for details. Here is a naive example on how to query the
    list. euca-describe-images $(curl --silent
    http://wiki.debian.org/Cloud/AmazonEC2Image/Squeeze/JSON?action=raw | jsonpipe
    | awk '/Debian606.ap-northeast-1.64/ {print $2}' | sed 's/"//g')

Have a nice week-end,
