Dear Maintainer,
   In order to upload an image to EC2 (either with euca-bundle-vol or
euca-bundle-image), a X509 public key certificate is required.  In order
to upload or bundle to Amazon, Amazon's certificate is required.
   As AWS is the most popular target for usage of the euca2ools, Ubuntu
has included the ec2 certificate in /usr/share/euca2ools/cert-ec2.pem and
create a symlink to it from /etc/ssl/certs/cert-ec2.pem.

   This allows the user to be able to do:
       euca-bundle-vol --ec2cert /usr/share/euca2ools/cert-ec2.pem
without having to externally find Amazon's certificate.

   This issue was originally raised in Ubuntu under bug 479836.

Thanks for considering the patch.
