Whiteboard

With ARM appearing in ubuntu we need to identify which images should be built for this architecture. ARM uses very specific boot methods for hardware that can vary from board to board, the currently vfat/syslinux image setup used for other architectures will not boot right away, ARM will need special treatment and we need to identify a bootloader process that works for the majority of the devices. It will also need to be identified if we want to use live images with ubiquity or go for a textbased install via debian-installer.

[persia] Note that the answers to these questions also depend on the selected flavour. While a ubiquity-based install might be interesting for e.g. Ubuntu Desktop, a d-i install is probably more interesting for e.g. Ubuntu Server.
