Summary

It would be beneficial for the debian-installer to facilitate automated installations / cloning similar to what the RH anaconda installer does with anaconda.ks. Better documentation for preseed and automated installation will be needed.

Release Note

This would effect enterprise / LTS deployments in facilitating automated installation for large deployments. Everything from classroom deployments to larger infrastructure that needs to "clone" and auto-deploy new Ubuntu installations.

Rationale

There is very little focus on a number of LTS / Enterprise focused topics, whereas this is used quite a lot around the community.

Use Cases

Assumptions

Design

You can have subsections that better describe specific parts of the issue.

Implementation

UI Changes

Should cover changes required to the UI, or specific UI that is required to implement this

Code Changes

Code changes should include an overview of what needs to change, and in some cases even the specific details.

Migration

Include:

Test/Demo Plan

It's important that we are able to test new features, and demonstrate them to users. Use this section to describe a short plan that anybody can follow that demonstrates the feature is working. This can then be used during CD testing, and to show off after release.

This need not be added or completed until the specification is nearing beta.

Outstanding Issues

This should highlight any issues that should be addressed in further specifications, and not problems with the specification itself; since any specification with problems cannot be approved.

BoF agenda and discussion

Use this section to take notes during the BoF; if you keep it in the approved spec, use it for summarising what was discussed and note any options that were rejected.
