Improve ubuntu-core to be better usable for endusers

Registered by Oliver Grawert on 2011-10-13

today ubuntu-core is actually the most minimal OS you need to run apt-get, there is no root password, no user or any other configuration in place on the core images ... this confuses users that want to use -core as a minimal development environment. target of this spec is to give users something in hand to easier make use of ubuntu-core, collect certain typical usecases and document what needs to be done to turn -core into a proper rootfs for these cases.
