Bug Description

trying to build an image with a gadget that uses the new "connections" stanza in gadget.yaml fails the yaml validation step when creating an image.

i guess the validation code for gadget.yaml in ubuntu-image needs updating for the new keywords.

looking at the code there is indeed nothing about "connect*" in

When the parser was created the gadget.yaml specification did not include the connections: stanza - we'll add that now. mvo had a good idea about adding a flag for ignoring unknown fields in the gadget.yaml - I'll fill in a separate bug for that and add it. Since otherwise, in cases where the gadget.yaml file will get a new field that'll start being in use, users will be blocked until the new u-i release.

The bug for handling the cases of unsupported stanzas is LP: #1780295.

That being said, it would be nice if the ubuntu-image maintainers would be informed of changes in the gadget.yaml spec. How else can we know that a new stanza has been introduced? Are we supposed to poll the forum for any changes regularly? That doesn't seem quite optimal. ubuntu-image is one of the bigger consumers of gadget.yaml so it would be nice to be included in the loop.

@sil2100 that's a reasonable request. To be fair it was a while it wasn't changed and both mvo and me didn't consider that ubunbu-image is doing strict parsing of the whole and not only "volumes".

About informing:
* we could ping you through the forum
* email
* open always a formal bug

let us know what are your preferences.
