Re: [Ubuntu-phone] New image build infrastructure enabled

Hi Colin,

That is very interesting happening and very cool.
Is the infrastructure of the image deployment going
to be kept in MAAS| Cloud | Ubuntu or Canonical.
This new cloud thing has amazed me a little since
it adds in a lots new possibilities for us all.
Since live image building can be done directly at MAAS with juju.

Hopefully the main immediate practical effect of this will be that
respin cycles for the milestone release this week will be much faster as
we'll be able to distribute them out to more builders.

There are a couple of features still awaiting deployment, namely builds
from -proposed (needed for stable releases) and builds with extra PPAs
(needed for the new CI engine).  IS has a ticket for this and it should
get done this week.

This will have the effect of slightly increasing the load on our
devirtualised build farm for the time being, because it will be assuming
the additional load previously taken by the livefs builders.  Fear not:
we will shortly be turning the livefs builders into additional Launchpad
builders.  This will give us a net increase in capacity (especially
noticeable on powerpc, I expect), since the livefs builders were not
running builds non-stop beforehand.
