    Ubuntu 20.10 Legacy-Server Kickstart Live-Server

    Up until 20.04, my process to use a Kickstart Preseed file worked with the Ubuntu Legacy-server installation ISO to produce an automated install package. Since Ubuntu 20.10 became available for daily drops, the Legacy-Server file directory has been created however there are no instances of daily build files. Live-Server is the only version of server than can be found and is regularly updated.
    I've tried porting the Kickstart process to Live-Server and received errors during boot of the modified ISO.

    Is Legacy-Server now obsolete starting from Ubuntu 20.10?
    Regardless of whether Legacy-Server has been obsoleted, will Live-Server ever support the Kickstart automated installation process currently documented in Ubuntu installation documentation?

    They only want to support the "live" installer and the "legacy" installer for 20.04 is said to be the last of the old Debian installer.

    There is a new process for creating an auto-installer and they say it is more flexible but I have not yet tried it.

    More info can be found here:
