I am planning to build Azure images using vmdebootstrap, and for these I
will likely be looking to build stable images as well as testing images. For
this I'll need a stable-backport for waagent. Is this something you will

This is not for a single package, the Azure team already maintains 6
packages and the number of packages is growing. I wrote about the Azure team

We are looking not only at images but also the SDKs and CLI tools around
