Bug Description

[Impact]

Users on older versions of Ubuntu cannot use the BigStep cloud.

[Test Case]

1) Launch an Ubuntu image with the fixed version of cloud-init in the BigStep cloud
2) Successfully SSH in to it

[Regression Potential]

Low; this adds a new file which is only read on instances that are explicitly configured to read from the BigStep data source.

Hello Dan, or anyone else affected,

Accepted cloud-init into trusty-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cloud-init/0.7.5-0ubuntu1.19 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!
