Cloud ubuntu image equivalent in images: image repository

I’m guessing that Canonical won’t make their “ubuntu:” regular cloud images available directly to Incus, right?

So if I you want to have an equivalent image with the same packages installed, what do you need to add to for example Ubuntu 22.04 image in community repository images:ubuntu/22.04/cloud? Is perhaps there a cloud-init or some similar script that makes this as painless as possible?

I was wondering the same thing. Here I posted the difference in packages for those two cloud images:

The main differences should be a number of smaller tools, sshd as well as snapd.

We try to keep our images as small as possible while still being functional out of the box.
The official Ubuntu images instead focus on providing the same content across all targets, but that leads to a bunch of unrelated stuff being included.
