Bug Description

I added 'lucid' as a valid suite name under ubuntu/plugins for 0.11.3 so I could create "lucid" images and when I run vmbuilder it gets right to the very end and then has a problem with finding ec2-init files.

When creating a "Lucid" image for EC2, vmbuilder cannot find ec2-init files:

vmbuilder that is used for building UEC images is (right now)

That should have all the code you need to build.

our automated builds (https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-on-ec2/vmbuilder/automated-ec2-builds) build from that branch out of a bzr checkout (ie, not a package).

Changed in vm-builder (Ubuntu):

Thanks Scott. I just checked that branch and it looks like it has everything I need.

Would it be possible for Ubuntu vmbuilder team to quickly pull together a 0.11.4 release for Karmic that would have support for 'Lucid' and 'Maverick'? That way we could also downgrade to it in Lucid until the 0.12 branch can have EC2 support added.
