cloud-init 0.7.1 change prevents creation of ec2-user
Last modified: 2012-12-20 16:20:23 EST
There's a config file change required for cloud-init in order for it at all useful. Specifically, the config file now needs to define default_user, like so:
gecos: EC2 user
groups: [wheel, adm]
sudo: ["ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL"]
Veersion 0.7.1-2 has the right config and I've confirmed that it works.
Sorry, QA/rel-eng team. Should have caught this sooner. We kinda need it in the release itself so we can make the EC2 images.
(Alternative I guess would be to roll back to 0.7.0 packages, but there's other bugfixes here.)
cloud-init-0.7.1-2.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing cloud-init-0.7.1-2.fc18'
as soon as you are able to.

As stated, this violates the following F18 final release criterion :
The release must boot successfully as Xen DomU with releases providing a functional, supported Xen Dom0 and widely used cloud providers utilizing Xen. This does not include any issues limited to the release functioning as Xen Dom0
