Description

Whenever Server s is created from Image i, the UI currently copies the value of metadata key i.OS to the newly created server, as s.OS.
This mechanism should be extended to support an arbitrary set of metadata keys, configurable in in settings.d/.

Need to explore how the API allows setting server metadata: Does the OS API provide a mechanism to specify all metadata values in a single POST /servers call? Is there a mechanism to create all metadata at once with a single POST call after POST /server has returned?

This mechanism may then be used to specify that a set of US-specific Image metadata keys, e.g., "OS", and "loginname" are to be inherited from the parent image (useful for #801).
