Thanks! That looks very promising - I'll give it a try.

Hi - I'm interested in being able to assign IAM Roles
<http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/iam-roles-for-amazon-ec2.html>
to my AWS VMs. My goal is to avoid AWS credentials in my deployment
manifests and, instead, let my deployed jobs utilize the AWS metadata
endpoint to retrieve the latest credentials.

I'm also hoping such a change might eventually work for micro/boshes that
bosh-init creates, avoiding the need to manually rotate those powerful keys.

I imagine this as a new, AWS-specific cloud option for resource pools. Is
this something which would be considered as a PR, and are there any
particular considerations I should take before implementing this?

Thanks!

Danny
