[SRU] Ensure "minimal" images have "minimal" in their /etc/cloud/build.info

Bug #1759519 reported by Chris Glass
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
livecd-rootfs (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This is a backport to xenial for changes landed in bionic in https://code.launchpad.net/~tribaal/livecd-rootfs/trunk-minimal-build-info/+merge/342096

/etc/cloud/build.info is the file we write to the (image) disk where we track build information. In the current state of things we hardcode "server" in there as the build type, but should instead write "minimal" for minimal builds.


 * Minimized images will have "minimal" in their /etc/cloud/build.info file.

[Test Case]

 * No new autopkgtest was added, however, it is trivial to check the produced image for the appropriate key.

[Regression Potential]

 * Since minimal images have not had an official release yet, none.

Hello Chris, or anyone else affected,

Accepted livecd-rootfs into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/livecd-rootfs/2.408.29 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 on 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-xenial to verification-done-xenial. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-xenial. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

I have verified that building the Xenial cloud images using this branch of livecd-rootfs with minimized flag results in
`build_name: minimal` in /etc/cloud/build.info.
