Canonical is working to start an SRU release of cloud-init 21.1 from tip of master into Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04, 20.04, 20.10 and 21.04 within the next week. Expect an email to the mailing list to notifying the cloud-init community of this SRU effort. When the SRU bits are uploaded into Ubuntu’s -proposed pockets, anyone help would be appreciated manually testing on your favorite cloud. Details will come to the cloud-init mailinglist.
