Hi all,

whats the build process of the Ubuntu EC2 EBS images? Are there
automated scripts or are they build manually?

I want to build my own EC2 EBS images. With Instance storage everything
works quite automated. But I'm struggling with the EBS ones.

To create an EBS AMI, I have to setup a Linux instance on each location,
create a EBS Volume, attach it and copy all files to the new EBS volume.
Is there any easier solution?
