Re: EC2: Jessie 8.4 AMIs (HVM)

Hi James,

This is awesome. Those new images really came up really quick, as 8.4
was released yesterday[1]. Truly impressive.

I've took a look and didn't noticed any serious issue, only this in dmesg:

[   39.275964] systemd[1]: Cannot add dependency job for unit
sshd-keygen.service, ignoring: Unit sshd-keygen.service failed to
load: No such file or directory.
[   39.285405] systemd[1]: Cannot add dependency job for unit
dbus.socket, ignoring: Unit dbus.socket failed to load: No such file
or directory.
[   39.291782] systemd[1]: Cannot add dependency job for unit
display-manager.service, ignoring: Unit display-manager.service failed
to load: No such file or directory.

But this looks to be present since 8.3 at least. Worth mentioning that
although the warning exists, there's no problem on regenerating SSH
host keys, which is done by cloud-init.

Also, the mirror in the manifest[2] is set to
"http://cloudfront.debian.net/debian";, but on an instance it was
changed to the default "http://httpredir.debian.org/debian";. In the
beginning of "/etc/apt/sources.list" there's the following mention:

## Note, this file is written by cloud-init on first boot of an instance
## modifications made here will not survive a re-bundle.
## if you wish to make changes you can:
## a.) add 'apt_preserve_sources_list: true' to /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg
##     or do the same in user-data
## b.) add sources in /etc/apt/sources.list.d
## c.) make changes to template file

So I guess this is related to the fact that there's a newer version of
cloud-init in backports than the one we were used to.

Is this something that can be worked out? Or does this have relation
to the fact that you are not an Amazon employee anymore?
