If what you actually want is a debuild source, then I just uploaded a way
to make get one.

  $ packages/bddeb -S -us -uc
  Wrote 'cloud-init_0.7.0~bzr606.orig.tar.gz'
  Wrote 'cloud-init_0.7.0~bzr606-1.diff.gz'
  Wrote 'cloud-init_0.7.0~bzr606-1_source.build'
  Wrote 'cloud-init_0.7.0~bzr606-1.dsc'
  Linked 'cloud-init_0.7.0~bzr606-1.dsc' to 'cloud-init.dsc'
  Wrote 'cloud-init_0.7.0~bzr606-1_source.changes'

If what you wanted was an "upstream source tarball" snapshot, just run:

We will have an official 0.7.0 release sometime in the near future.  Until
then, in ubuntu, I'm just grabbing upstream snapshots for 12.10
