fastpath installer work for 13.10
13.04 brought a proof of concept fast path installer and some integration into maas. 13.10 needs to further this and make it much more a product.
Rickie wants to provision ubuntu as fast as possible. He can boot into a ubuntu environment via maas ephemeral or pxe-boot and wants to install the hardware that is booted.
Ubuntu's fast path installer can install Ubuntu and run user code in as little as 3 minutes from "deploy" to "user code".
