Re: Bug#746394: Please consider shipping pre-built images in Debian packages

Personally, I'd prefer that we use packer instead of bootstrap-vz (https://github.com/andsens/bootstrap-vz) to build official Debian images of which should be published on http://cdimage.debian.org or the more appropriate file server for users to download.
One of the "issue" with Packer, at least for EC2 (Ocean, GCE,  ..?) is it creates an image from an existing EC2 instance. So you need to get an EC2 account and use some "minimal" Amazon resources to build an image.
With bootstrap-vz, you build your images only locally on your computer, no need of remote account/resource.

And what debian-cloud team? (CCing them)

I don't know if that it's outside of the tasks of the team (what do you
think guys?) but it would be nice if you can provide properly
maintained and signed images?

I'm a member of that team (I'm almost inactive although) but maybe we
can contribute with that. For example, I have a very simple image in my
web page[1] generated with debootstrap and signed with my key since is
the only one I trust so far to play around with docker.
