I wanted to see if anyone knew when raring will make it to to be downloaded and deployed by MAAS? I know the daily builds are available there, but have some issues deploying from daily builds as it is.

Can you confirm that you're specifically looking for Raring ephemeral images? These are used during enlistment and commissioning only, not for deployment. If so, could you please explain why you need Raring ephemeral images so that we can understand what you're after? Or are you just trying to deploy Raring using MAAS, in which case could you please amend your question? – Robie Basak Apr 26 '13 at 16:22

The raring image for MAAS should be released next week. However note that by default, this is only used for enlistment/commissioning. If you would like to install raring, you don't really need this image. What you need to do is to add raring to the least of releases in:


And then you need to run:

sudo maas-import-pxe-files

Andres' answer is not sufficient (as in it does not work). Perhaps in a week it will. But as of today, it does not.

I added raring to the list and the import (sudo maas-import-pxe-files) failed because it couldn't find

Raring is now in both the ephemeral and query directories and should be ready to deploy with MAAS. – Timothy Lambert May 2 '13 at 13:42
