ubuntu but it doesn't assign any password, instead juju will make sure that your public SSH key is installed, so when it's up and running you can do
Is it possible to specify an image or list of packages to install on a per-node basis in MAAS? Or, is this a job for juju instead?
That's a job for Juju.
