Dear devops team,
Recently I have pushed cloud-init back to [community], one Arch Linux
user did some improvements on the cloud-init codebase as well and they
are going to officially support arch linux with version 19.3.
Therefore I have added support for cloud-images to the arch-boxes
project. These images are qcow2 images and are expected to be
installed in cloud-environments like Openstack.
The only thing what is missing is a way to distribute the images and
My current plan has been that I build and sign them locally and then
upload them to a web directory (This is the most secure way as
possible right now).
For this I need answers for a few questions:
1. Can I have a web-directory, where only I have access to?
2. Which key should I use to sign them? A new cloud-image signing key or
my personal key? (I think latter should be enough).
3. I expect to build them monthly like the ISOs, how many images do you
want to keep? My current assumption is that 1 year of image backup of
cloud-images (qcow2) only would cost us around 30-50GB.
4. Do we want to mirror the images?
Today we have another DevOps meeting at 20:30 UTC or in your own
Since I didn't get any feedback on topics yet, I propose to hold a debug
session on the terraform situation and discuss mailman 3.
