Few questions about cloud-init...


Hi all,

I've been going through the documentation for cloud-init for the past few
days, and experimenting with VMs.
I still do not understand a few things. I'd appreciate if someone could
clarify this for me.

1. How does cloud-init select a datasource? Does it go through all the
available datasources till it gets a valid meta-data and user-data?
2. Is there a way to verify a cloud-config yaml file, before I go for the
actual run with the file?
