After conversation during 'cloud' BoF and then CD BoF I'd add following points:

* it's highly desirable that images should (probably even 'have to') to be
  build on Debian infrastructure (we have to investigate how to do it for some
  providers like AWS and GCE)
* all images will have to pass some tests (we have to define them 1st so in
 this regards if you have some ideas please put them in on the wiki[1])
 I have more/less idea how (thx Zigo) we can run those tests, just need to
 think a bit more about implementation, but all means pls jump in on board with
 any ideas (or code) if you think we can benefit from it

I'd say that scriptability is indisputable requirement but not the only one as
pointed above by Emmanuel :-)

Anders I had conversation with Riku Voipio he's interested in adding support
for embedded devices to the bootstrap-vz, what are you thought about it?

Bootstrap-vz 0.9.5 is basically packaged but I hit some strange bug in regards
of creating stretch images from jessie boxes (didn't created bug yes as 1st
want to have a closer look into it) and there is github issue #240[2] it's not
a show stopper but would be nice to sort it out. I'm hoping to have package
fully tested and operational this weekend. If somebody want to fiddle with it
you can find it on alioth[3]
