Bug Description

additionally to setting up the network and setting up an admin user console-conf should allow me to also assign a hostname dynamically (overriding a potentially set hostname from the gadget) so not all ubuntu-core installs in my house are called "localhost"

Makes sense. I presume I can just call hostname(1) to get/set the host name?

I guess this should be asked on a separate screen, after network but before asking for the SSO email address?

not sure, i always edit /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts manually (old habit), i'm not sure the call to hostname updates /etc/hosts

The DHCP server might have told you to use a hostname to use when you're assigned an address. If so, default to that in the prompt to the user.
