Anyone else getting this AttributeError: 'MIMEMultipart' object has no attribute 'policy' during the init (cloud-init init) stage?

I think the is a little too opinionated for general use with the defaults set as they are.

I'm maintaining a private fork with defaults that work for my image building process, but IMO maybe leave most of it out and put it on the person installing it to know what they want their cloud-init config to look like post-install and inject the file via whatever config/systems management is being leveraged.

@flaccid I just added you to the list.

I'm essentially testing cloud-init to orchestrate Kubernetes cluster components atop AWS and a small French cloud-provider (Scaleway).

That boils down two making sure cloud-init can pull config from the provider's metadata APIs and launch a few systemd units... having a more diverse set of maintainers with various use cases is a very good thing :)

@bitfehler looks like AUR probably just changed a bit. Assuming python-cheetah3 is the go now.

@Sparadox sure, I can help maintain if you like.

Sorry, AUR e-mail suddenly went to a SPAM mailbox on my Gmail account :( I just noticed your comments :/

@bitfehler I cherry-picked your commits (all of them) into the master branch and pushed them. The last one was missing a .SRCINFO update, which I added.

@flaccid I also had a look at your package and allowed myself to pick some of your code I liked (in particular pushd/popd use and the missing dependency to python-six).

I'd love your feedback. Also, if you're interested in co-maintaining this package, I'll be glad to add you to give you access.

Yay, 19.1 is out :)

@flaccid, could you tell me which cheetah package you are using as a dependency in the cloud-init package you linked? You are using python-cheetah, but I don't know of such a package (AUR is called python-cheetah3) and I can't find it in your Github project either...

I would love to have cloud-init with python3 as dependencies as well.

Hi Conrad . Sorry for the late reply.

For some reason, I thought cloud-init was supporting python2... and I'm apparently totally wrong: Debian uses cloud-init as a dependency for Python 3 .

I'm therefore totally interested in merging the changes into this package. I'll have a look at the two commits you added and cherry-pick them if they do work.

Thanks a lot :)

thanks for maintaining this! I am successfully using a modified version of this package using python3 instead of python2 (removing some obsolete deps along the way): It works well for me on EC2, but of course it is always hard to test all aspects of cloud-init. However, I checked the imports in the cloud-init source code, so I have at least some confidence that the updated dependencies are correct. Could I maybe interest you in testing that and maybe merging those changes into your package? :)
