It's a fairly common thing that I want to fire up a clean EC2 instance of a particular version of Ubuntu (usually lucid or precise) and then SSH in to that instance once it's up.
I've got some Python code that I use to do it for projects (lp:pkgme-service, lp:lp-dev-utils), but I was wondering whether there's a command-line tool.
- I tried
ubuntu-ec2-run. It doesn't use a security group that opens up SSH, so I would have to do that manually.
