Thanks for your quick reply. As these boxes are primarily used (by me and many others I bet) for development purposes, it's quite essential ca-certificates is present. lsb-release is necessary for Puppet's facts gathering tool and I imagine Ansible uses it as well. Is it an idea to add these packages manually back into the image?

Kind regards,
