Image properties with special meaning
=====================================
Properties used during image deployment
---------------------------------------
- OSFAMILY={linux, windows}
This specifies whether this is a Linux or a Windows image.
- ROOT_PARTITION=n
The partition number of the root partition.
- USERS="username1 username2..."
This is a space-seperated list of users, whose password will
be reset during deployment.
- SWAP=<n>:<size>
If this property is present, cyclades will create a swap
partition with given size at the end of the instance's disk.
This property only makes sense for Linux images.
Properties used by the ~okeanos User Interface
----------------------------------------------
- OS
The value of this property is used to associate the image
with an Operating System Logo.
- DESCRIPTION
A short description about the image.
- SIZE
This is used by the UI to compute the image copy progress
during deployment.
- GUI
Short description about the Graphical User Interface the
image hosts.
- KERNEL
The kernel version of the image OS.
