Hey Dustin,

Cool charm, thanks for making this! I tested on EC2 and it works great, with a few minor caveats:


- The charm needs to `open-port 80` at some point to allow access to the web interface.


- The config-changed hook will fail (exit 5) if you pass an https input_url. This isn't a deal-breaker, but it would be nice to note this limitation in the README.
- I believe this charm won't work on lxc because NFS won't work - it would be nice to note this limitation in the README as well.

Thanks again for the charm! If you have time to make these small corrections I think we can get this into the store soon!

Thank you for the Transcode charm submission. I've validated the charm, and it appears you've addressed Tim's feedback based on the open-port(80) block in the start hook of the charm.

I see no apparent blockers for this charm's inclusion in the charm store, and have started the promulgation now. Please note I've included a quick commit to add the caveats outlined above to the charm's readme, that you may need to backport to your local branch for future updates to prevent branch divergence.
