Bug Description

Up to and including Xenial, hosts root.tar.gz/ rootfs images, which are used by nova-lxd when importing images into glance.

For example, the documentation at and also the scripts embedded in the conjure-up spell for deploying NovaLXD use something very similar to:

glance image-create --name="trusty" --public --progress \
--container-format=bare --disk-format=raw \

Unfortunately there do not seem to be any root tarballs available for Yakkety and Xenial, has something changed there in the build process?

As discussed with Gareth on IRC, more recent versions provide a squashfs which NovaLXD can use successfully. Closing this out.
