[one-users] New contextualization packages

Thank you for these packages.  They work great and are an excellent base.  I used both deb & rpm.

I customized them to add some features:
* setting entries in /etc/hosts file
* modified for support of resolvconf package in ubuntu 12.04
* added HOSTNAME context variable
* added DOMAINNAME variable
* added optional ADMIN_USERNAME, ADMIN_PASSWORD, ADMIN_SSH_PUB_KEY to support creation of an admin account only if it doesn't already exist.

I find when I clone a VM, on the first boot, it still has some of the old "template" vm settings because the context happens too late in the boot process.  I plan to add a feature where the last context script will reboot the system if it was the first time booting.  This lets things like the hostname take effect.

Thanks again,

We have prepared new contextualization packages and made them more
modular so you can also add your own tweaks. Here you have an
introductory post with the new features and usage:


The links to download the packages are in the documentation (

I hope you will find it useful.
