Bug Description

Hello,

there was a discussion about cloud-init on the « debian-cloud » mailing list, and one of the outcome was to suggest to add more documentation on how to use cloud-init in /doc/README, which is installed as « /usr/share/doc/cloud-init/README » on Debian systems and is therefore one of the first files one will read to better learn how to use cloud-init.

https://lists.debian.org/debian-cloud/2012/12/msg00049.html

In particular, the following information was suggested :

> The way to use it without EC2 or OpenStack is documented in
> doc/sources/nocloud/README
>
> Basically, you put meta-data into
> /var/lib/cloud/seed/nocloud/meta-data. This is described in
> doc/examples/seed/. This file is where you set things like hostname and
> install authorized_keys.
>
> Then to do further system configuration a cloud-config stanza goes in
> /var/lib/cloud/seed/nocloud/user-data
>
> The capabilities of cloud-config are best discovered in
> doc/examples/cloud-config.txt

Have a nice Sunday,

I've been working on http://cloud-init.readthedocs.org/, hopefully this can be the code-driven site that I want it to be (derived from docs in the cloud-init docs folder...)

Sorry, that moved to http://cloudinit.readthedocs.org/en/latest/ after I broke the other url :-P
