> Jclouds 1.5.0 brings a lot of improvements and a set of new providers we can use. 
> Adrian added on the discussion list:
> "Jclouds 1.5 has a concept called TemplateBuilderSpec which allows you to
> declare a String representation of TemplateBuilder mechanics.
> This allows you to set a property to override the default templates used in
> jclouds.
> For ex.
> aws-ec2.template=imageId=ami-foo,hardwareId=m1.large,locationId=eu-west-1
> Importantly, these are just strings, so you can publish a series per
> operating system family, and choose at runtime with
> templateBuilder.from(spec)
> Ex. You can make your own Map<String, TemplateBuilderSpec> with your
> favorite choices, perhaps locking in templates by id so you don't have to
> maintain the brittle java install scripts.
> Ex.
> templates.get("oneiric-java-ec2");
> Regardless of how this is used, the important part is that the constant
> complaints of automatic selection can now be over, as we can provide a
> properties syntax to afford users a means to supply their preferences
> declaratively."
