Who created the ubuntu-minimal-16.04-server-armhf-raspberry-pi.img.xz image?

I found it linked from here, and it's the only Ubuntu 16.04 image I've found that works reliably on both the Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3, but it doesn't appear to be an official image released by Canonical. Unfortunately, the official Raspberry Pi images published by Canonical here don't work on the Pi 3.

  • Yes, but that site doesn't seem to host or make the images. They just host links to torrents. That image doesn't appear on Canonical's official image servers.

  • @Mateo, What's that in reference to? That doesn't seem to mention this image...

  • it is the new official pi3 image, what then is the purpose of your question, to find the new pi images, or just the creator of the image you mentioned?
