The proposal to merge ~raharper/cloud-init:snapuser-create into
cloud-init:master has been updated.
Description changed to:
Add support for snap create-user on Ubuntu Core images
Ubuntu Core images use the `snap create-user` to add users to a Ubuntu
Core system. Add support for creating snap users by added a key to
the users dictionary:
- name: bob
Or via the 'snappy' dictionary:
These methods will contact the Ubuntu SSO infrastructure to request
user information (including public ssh keys if present) for creating
Users may also create a snap user without contacting the SSO by
providing a 'system-user' assertion by importing them into snapd.
<assertion text here>
Additionally, Ubuntu Core systems have a read-only /etc/passwd such that
the normal useradd/groupadd commands do not function without an additional
flag, '--extrausers', which redirects the pwd to /var/lib/extrausers.
Move the system_is_snappy() check from cc_snappy module to util for
re-use and then update the Distro class to append '--extrausers' if
the system is Ubuntu Core.
