Subject RE: How to Bundle Apps?

You can do this two ways.

1. Use RightScale
2. Roll your own solution by using userdata.  In the userdata, you store information about
what each VM is supposed to become.  Your template contains puppet or chef scripts.  Those
scripts will access the userdata for that VM and use that to determine how it branches.
