From bug 1047467 We could add support for PV and HVM (using different AMIs), what would require: * creating and testing HVM AMI for Ubuntu * generate golden AMIs for both types * add support for both AMI types in aws_watch_pending.py
Just as a fyi, I won't be able to work on this in the near future. My current priorities are bug 1019724, bug 1080608 and finishing material for this class next week http://polymorse.polymtl.ca/plow/
Finally! https://hg.mozilla.org/build/cloud-tools/rev/b11e7b8c1701 We can create instances using "-c cloud-tools/configs/tst-linux64-hvm" in https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReleaseEngineering/How_To/Loan_a_Slave#Test_machines I haven't tested 32-bit AMI generation.
