When we talk about Cloud Images for OpenStack, both Ubuntu and CentOS provides fixed URLs that never changes.
This way, we can easily automate Glance to download images by demand, we can have new images, without adding new images into glance!
CentOS 6/7 fixed image URL:
Ubuntu 16.04 fixed image URL:
Then, on Glance, here is how I'm adding those images:
I'm using my own Ansible automation to do this:
The problem with Debian is that there is no fixed URL! Debian images disappears from time to time, which breaks my automation and that "Glance download by demand feature", like this:
Debian 8.5 image URL:
This image will be gone, soon as Debian launches 8.6.0!!! This is bad.
So, can Debian provides something like this:
For example, this:
Hope that Debian provides something similar!
