This is just an FYI
I know a developer and he said this is still something new canonical are
working on to replace orchestra in regards to provisioning, I dont think
its going ot be ready for prime time at least until the next LTS. I
woudl like to do some testing come summer about this as this is a
feature that interests me greatly.
