Right now we have cloud-init in backports and testing/Jessie (yay! Well done Thomas, Jakub and Charles).
Thanks, but unfortunately, it is still waiting for FTP masters approval.
It seems I was wrong, cloud-init really is in backports already! :)
I wonder though why it still doesn't show on packages.debian.org.
I was not able to use that version of cloud-init (from jessie)
That's what I used and backported. What functionality didn't work for
you? For me everything was working:
- ssh key was added in /home/debian/.ssh/authorized_keys2
- hostname was set correctly
- HDD was resized as expected

Am I missing something? What functionality are we missing because
lacking of these init scripts?
I believe one of the main features of cloud-init is to provide user data to the machine at boot time [1]. This functionality did not work for me with the current (0.7.2) version of cloud-init in debian (they work in ubuntu) but was restored by the proposed patch [2]. This functionality is useful in EC2 as well as openstack.
