Bug Description

According to the code to handle yumrepos, cloud-init "Can handle 'lists' in certain cases".

When I specify a list in my cloud-config, it is incorrectly formatted. It is surrounded by '''triple single-quotes''' when rendered onto the filesystem, causing the resulting configuration to be invalid.

I am using cloud-init from Centos7, from the amazon ami marketplace:

$ rpm -qi cloud-init

Summary : Cloud instance init scripts
Description :
Cloud-init is a set of init scripts for cloud instances. Cloud instances
need special scripts to run during initialization to retrieve and install
ssh keys and to let the user run various scripts.

Example configuration:

        name: SaltStack repo for Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever
        baseurl: https://repo.saltstack.com/yum/redhat/$releasever/$basearch/latest
        enabled: true
        gpgcheck: true
            - https://repo.saltstack.com/yum/redhat/$releasever/$basearch/latest/SALTSTACK-GPG-KEY.pub
            - https://repo.saltstack.com/yum/redhat/$releasever/$basearch/latest/base/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-7

Result of Example configuration:

# Created by cloud-init on Mon, 13 Jun 2016 20:05:01 +0000
gpgcheck = 1
gpgkey = '''https://repo.saltstack.com/yum/redhat/$releasever/$basearch/latest/SALTSTACK-GPG-KEY.pub
enabled = 1
baseurl = https://repo.saltstack.com/yum/redhat/$releasever/$basearch/latest
name = SaltStack repo for Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever
