JeOS tutorial

Not sure whether this is off topic. I am fairly new to Linux and have
joined this mailing list only recently.

I read through the JeOS tutorial and found it very well written.
However, I was wondering whether there might be something to consider
with the First User Boot script.

The script seems to remove openssh-server without making sure that the
appliance is connected to the network, or to the Internet. So, if the
appliance has no access to a repository, it may not be able to install

Should there be some recovery for that? Or a warning message to tell the
user to verify that the appliance is connected to a network before the
script removes openssh-server?

Thank you
