IRC room dead? + Feature requests
A couple things to throw out there:
The ReadTheDocs documentation mentions a Freenode room #cloud-init.
I've jumped on a couple times and found it completely empty. Is this
defunct or did it maybe move somewhere else and the docs just need to
Also, I have two feature ideas / requests for cloud-init. If I wasn't
an extremely weak programmer - really the stuff I cobble together in
Python is laughable - I would try to take a shot at one of both of
1. Redhat Registration - I realize this was a Ubuntu program first,
and is maintained by Ubuntu folks, but really the program is becoming
universal. I would love to be able to register new instances in
Openstack using rhn.
2. The ability to tell cloud-init to set the hostname via resolution
of the IP it receives via DHCP. I'm currently doing this with a
firstboot script via virt-sysprep, but that fires after cloud-init and
since I need my hostname in place before I puppetize an instance or
join it to RHN, I have to do those things outside of cloud-init.
