> Hello,
> The current size lock-in of the ROOT disk based on the template is not consistent and
creates problem.
> I've always toyed with the idea of a market place, sadly the random size lock-in is the
major turn-off.
> Additionally it may be one of the causes (along with lack of popularity) for distributions
not to provide OS image templates as they do for Openstack; which gets me to the next issue:
> - official images for Openstack could be used with minimal modifications now that cloud-init
started to support Cloudstack as a data source, but most of these images are very minimal
(< 1GB) since they rely on dracut-modules-growroot and similar to expand to the target
> This hinders adoption.
> I don't know how it's done on other hypervisors, on KVM I believe the template could
be used as a backing file; interesting read:
