Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Move to Debian9 systemvmtemplate
Date Thu, 27 Jul 2017 15:19:30 GMT
-1 on Arch as well. Moving to Debian 9 seems the wiser choice IMO. I've
used Packer before and I really like it, the only downside that I see is
that Packer lacks support for XenServer VHD images. There is some work on a
XenServer plugin but I haven't tested that. If the community decides to use
Packer, I can do some initial validation of it on XenServer.

Thanks,
-Syed
