To work closely with AWS, there is no specific agreement necessary.
James, Marcin, and I discussed setting up a monthly cadence to ensure

together. I think that Debian is an established OS partner, but there
is always room for improvement and more collaborative work like we
have done even at the last cloud SIG.

Sending a note to spi-board to keep the momentum here (from my work

intended to complete from early Nov. as well.
