A one-shot cloud provider agent
Afterburn is a one-shot agent for cloud-like platforms which interacts with provider-specific metadata endpoints. It is typically used in conjunction with Ignition.
It comprises several modules which may run at different times during the lifecycle of an instance.
The following features are conditionally available on some platforms as systemd service units: * installing public SSH keys for local system users * retrieving attributes from instance metadata * checking in to the provider in order to report a successful boot or instance provisioning
