I've been working on creating EBS root images on ec2 . These are
being populated with an identical filesystem to our existing UEC images.
The tools  copy the published filesystem images from  to a EBS
volume, snapshot that, and then register it.
I'd love for anyone to give these images a whirl and see what falls on
the floor. Without further ado, the following are registered using the
latest daily lucid build (20100305):
us-east-1 i386 ami-8bec03e2
us-east-1 amd64 ami-99ec03f0
eu-west-1 i386 ami-85b49ff1
eu-west-1 amd64 ami-87b49ff3
us-west-1 i386 ami-0971204c
us-west-1 amd64 ami-15712050
Thanks in advance for any testing you can offer. I've not done much
more than sniff initial boot, and rely on  for the general procedure.
I'm aware of one bug in these images that blocks reboot. Its now fixed
in cloud-init's trunk and I'll get a package for it soon. The fix is to
run the following before reboot:
sudo sed -i 's,^ephemeral0,#ephemeral0,' /etc/fstab
