Re: build-debian-cloud python version preview

FWIW I'm hoping to find time to add Google Compute Engine support to the Python version soon, but due to other deadlines at work, it might have to wait beyond this month. I might also need to send a small number of additional PRs to the shell version, but hopefully not too many or for too long. Looking forward to the Pythonic future!

If you're talking about shell version I my opinion it's no go as it's
downloading resources from 3rd party sites like euca2ools, boto patches etc..
I don't think it's appropriate or policy valid to put such kind of soft into
archive. Of course we can remove those obstructions, but question is how far
away are we from having python version available.

Beside after short conversation with Anders I prefer not to put current
'stable' version into Debian archive.

Hopefully I won't reveal any secret that Anders is very close to release alpha
version for the python rewrite.

Np will do it.
I the mean time if you want to use package I prepared for master branch I can
reupload it to mentors just let me know.
It's build on the latest commit from master with small patch to make Debian
stuff working.

No worries, you aren't :-)
My main focus has actually been on virtualbox, because it's perfect to test bootloading  etc. on.
This also brings the challenge of partitioning, which opened up a pandoras box of issues.
Right now I am working on a changeset that involves around +1000 lines and -400 lines.
Partitioning also means that we can get ec2 hvm images up and running (and partitioning is generally speaking not such a bad idea ^^).
I have not had a look at the kvm part yet, but I suspect that adjusting it is going to be quite easy.

Also I am pulling quite a bit of dependencies into the host right now.
qemu-utils, parted, grub2, euca2ools and xfsprogs if you want to use XFS as a filesystem
The following python libraries are required:
boto, jsomschema v2, termcolor, fysom
