These steps will walk through building a the package with the root filesystem bundled as a package resource. The root filesystem will appear writable but all writes are volatile and will disappear when the guest shuts down.

The Debian system exposes a simple telnet interface over vsock port 23. You can use the
guest CLI to connect to this socket to open a shell. First we need to identify the environment ID and the guest context ID (CID) to use:
$ guest list env:0 debian_guest guest:3 debian_guest
The above indicates the debian guest is CID 3 in environment 0. Open a shell with:
$ guest socat 0 3 23
All of the images constructed by
build.sh (see above) are available on CIPD. To update and upload those images run the following. The scripts will prompt for a CIPD auth token and for sudo access.
