Weekly status #117

Weekly status for the week of the 23rd to the 29th of September.


The big internal refactoring ahead of the introduction of virtual machine support has continued over this past week, slowly trying to split all of the container management logic into individual Go packages, fixing some bugs along the way.

One new feature which got added is the concept of cluster member roles, right now this only includes database as an initial role, matching the database flag that was already present, but it will become the foundation for more member roles in the near future.

On the image side of things, a number of issues around networking and cloud-init support have been fixed and we now have daily testing for full network connectivity and cloud-init provisioning.
