Hello everyone!

Cloud-init for Windows is awesome, I do really like this project! I work for a cloud provider: Our cloud in our one solution, we write it from scratch, and it has support for Amazon EC2 and S3 API. Since it is not OpenStack, we have some incompatibilities and I've patched cloud-init to support our cloud. But I could not find any build scripts to test my modifications. Could you tell, how do you build cloud-init to create msi installer?

Thank you in advance! Best regards, Vladimir Krumshtein

Hi Vladimir, at the moment the cloudbase-init project is entirely open sourced while the installer itself is not (although freely available of course).

Here's a simple way to provision a Windows image with your extensions and without a custom installer:

  1. Install the current cloudbase-init using the installer
  2. Update cloudbase-init, e.g. from a github fork with "python install"
  3. Sysprep again the instance

If you have a feature that you'd like to add upstream please submit a patch, we'll happily take a look!
