Spotlight: cloud-init 19.1.1 upstream released to Eoan

Upstream release of cloud-init version 19.1.1 has been released. It represents 5 months of development from 24 developers in 20 different domains and fixes 30 launchpad issues. This release has already been published to Eoan.

Cloud-init 19.1.1 is also undergoing Stable Release Update (SRU) verification this week. This version is available in the proposed pockets for Xenial, Bionic, Cosmic and Disco series.

To kick the tires on cloud-init 19.1.1, one can add a -proposed apt source line and apt-get install cloud-init. Expectation is that we will finish SRU testing on cloud-init 19.1.1 for Xenial, Bionic, Cosmic and Disco by next week.
