This session will include the following subject(s):

Dive into cloudinit:

It'd be great to go over cloudinit with everyone, provide examples of what it can do and how it does it (technically) and how it can be used with openstack (config drive, ec2 metadata...). What some of the new features were for folsom. Ideas about what people want in the future would also be greatly appreciated...

CirrOS and the future of cloud guests:

CirrOS [http://cirros-cloud.net] is a small linux distribution designed primarily for quick validation of the ability to boot instances.

Some of its features:
* support for executing user-data
* support for config-drive-v2 and ec2 metadata source
* very small (less than 15M download)
* boots very quickly
* boots in LXC or kvm
* acpid (poweroff via acpi event)

I'd like to make people aware of this, and see what other things they'd like it to have it do.
