Bug Description

Ubuntu 14.04 cloud images introduce pollinate for seeding the pseudo random number generator.

While the pool of servers used by pollinate are easily configurable in /etc/default/pollinate, it would be useful if cloud-init supported a method for passing in those servers at instance launch time.

This is a logical change that should satisfy user concerns about specificying pollinate server. Whilst I haven't seen the proposed diff, the principle is sane and no defualt change. Seems a logical change for trusty.

FFe granted.

This bug was fixed in the package pollinate - 4.6-0ubuntu1

---------------
pollinate (4.6-0ubuntu1) trusty; urgency=low

  * debian/pollinate.default:
    - move the default from POOL to SERVER
    - this way, someone can zero out SERVER, whereas POOL is always additive
  * pollinate:
    - save a few forks of hostname
  * debian/pollinate.upstart, pollinate: LP: #1286316
    - now that cloud-init itself is calling pollinate, remove the
      "start on starting cloud-init" trigger
    - when running pollinate through cloud-init, we are not guaranteed
      that syslog will be up, and smoser insists on running pollinate --quiet
      thus we will quietly log our pollinate activity in
      /var/cache/pollinate/log
