Binary packages built by this source

cloud-initramfs-growroot: automatically resize the root partition on first boot

 This package adds functionality to an initramfs built by initramfs-tools.
 When installed, the initramfs will repartition a disk to make the
 root volume consume all space that follows it.
 You most likely do not want this package unless you know what you are
 doing. It is primarily interesting in a virtualized environment when
 a disk can provisioned with a size larger than its original size.
 In this case, with this package installed, you can automatically use
 the new space without requiring a reboot to re-read the partition table.

cloud-initramfs-rescuevol: boot off a rescue volume rather than root filesystem

 This package adds functionality to an initramfs built by initramfs-tools.
 When installed the initramfs will check to see if any partitions
 with a label of 'RESCUE_VOL' are attached. If such a volume is attached,
 it will boot off that volume rather than the root volume.
 This is useful in a cloud environment, when the user is able to attach
 and detach volumes to a running system, but has no other mechanism
 for interupting of fixing a failed boot. It is analogous to inserting
 a rescue CD into a system to recover from failure.
