Accessing the metadata API?

Hi Andres,

Basically I’ve been struggling with how curtin works, but I finally got the the following stuck in curtin_userdata:

99_bootstrap: ["curtin", "in-target", "/bin/bash", "/usr/local/bin/"]

Then in the script I actually want to extract the FQDN of my node (but since I run in the installer environment, I can’t really rely it seems on the network to tell me this).

When you mention that I could do node.fqdn(), where would I put that? Is that some curtin templating? Python?
