Bug Description

Cobbler shows the juju.preseed under "Kickstart templates", but it's not editable (=viewable). After running the workaround mentioned on http://cloud.ubuntu.com/2011/10/getting-started-with-ubuntu-orchestra-servers-in-concert/ I get the orchestra.preseed there as well, but it's just as un-editable as juju.preseed.

Thanks, Timo.

Andres, we need to take a close look at much of Orchestra and Cobbler
and make sure that the things that should be editable are, and the
things that should not be, are not. For instance, our squid.conf
should be a conffile, but it's in /usr. These preseeds as well, as
someone might want to change the default password, for instance.

Dustin,

The preseed are not editable thru the cobbler website because they get installed into /var/lib/orchestra/kickstarts/ and then they are symlinked into /var/lib/cobbler/kickstarts.

If we were to install the orchestra preseed directly into /var/lib/cobbler/kickstarts, these preseed would be editable.

If this is a better approach we can simply change the installation path. Ideas?

---------------
orchestra (2.23-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  [ Andres Rodriguez ]
  * Install preseeds in var/lib/cobbler/kickstarts to make them editable
    in cobbler's webui. Do not create symlinks. (LP: #882943)
  * orchestra-import-isos: Change KSDIR default to /var/lib/cobbler/kickstarts
    instead of /var/lib/orchestra/kickstarts.
  * orchestra/utils/keys.py: Return "true" for preseed not to fail if keys
    are not found or empty. (LP: #891915)
  * debconf question to select whether to run orchestra-import-isos on
    installation. (LP: #892328)

  [ Dustin Kirkland ]
  * debian/control:
    - recommend ccze for log monitoring, it's awesome!
    - package arrangement per UDS-Orlando live session

  [ Adam Gandelman ]
  * Update references to squid directories and config files to point to
    squid3 equivalent
  * squid.conf: Update for squid3 compat. Removed: 'acl all src all' (now
    built-into squid3), broken_vary_encoding (not supported in squid3),
    upgrade_http0.9 + extension_methods (deprecated, no longer necessary)
  * debian/ubuntu-orchestra-provisioning-server.postinst: Backup original
    squid.conf if it exists. Stop squid3 before populating directory structure
    as it won't happen if squid3 is already running, later restart will fail.
