First of all - thanks for the feedback - much appreciated. I've had a
catchup on cloud-archive bugs this morning :-).

It is but to answer this question in full I need to explain how
packages get into the cloud-archive. The cloud-archive in effect
contains a backport of Openstack (+ related packages) from the Ubuntu
release associated with the Openstack release for Ubuntu 12.04.
Folsom CA -> Derives from Quantal
Grizzly CA -> Derives from Raring
Any changes to the Folsom cloud-archive packages would normally go
through a Ubuntu SRU for Quantal; once the updates are in
quantal-proposed they also get accepted as backports into the
precise-proposed/folsom pocket in the cloud archive so they can be
tested on Ubuntu 12.04 as well.
As a result it would be helpful if you could also raise bug tasks for
the associated packages in Ubuntu as well as a general bug against the
ubuntu-cloud-archive project. This makes it easier to track changes
through the Ubuntu development release/stable releases into the
I took a look through some of the bugs you raised; some are more
relevant for the Ubuntu development release only as they relate to
minor changes to packaging rather than actual issues end users would
experience so would not go through the SRU process:
Any issue that effects the use of packages from the cloud archive
needs to be tracked so the ubuntu-cloud-archive bug task is critical.

Help always appreciated; keep raising bugs; the more detail the
better. Help with verification of stable release updates for Folsom
would also be much appreciated.
You may find
useful for checking out what versions are currently working through
the SRU process to the cloud archive.
Please feel free to ping adam_g, zul of myself (jamespage) in
