Package: cloud-init
Version: 0.7.2-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?
     Install upstart and cloud-init on the same system.
   * What exactly did you do
     Boot a fresh instance.
   * What was the outcome of this action?
     System boots but rc never returns because startpar is waiting for
     jobs to be in a start/running state.
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
     I expected the system to boot completely.

The problem is that upstart booting on Debian is in a transition phase
where startpar listens to upstart events to keep track of upstartified
scripts that have scripts in /etc/rc#.d. It may miss early started
events though, so it will consider a job in 'start/running' as ready.

Since cloud-init uses tasks to control early boot, the tasks will have
run, but will be 'stop/waiting'. So startpar waits forever for them and
never moves to the final phase of the sysvinit boot.

As long as we need startpar for sysvinit<->upstart, we will have to use
pre-exec instead of 'task' to run one-time tasks. The jobs will also
need 'stop on' so the shut down does not block waiting for them.

Unfortunately, upstart isn't maintained in Debian anymore, therefore, we
should ignore issues with it.
