Are those scripts maintained and usable on the platform?

Looking at the source code seems that the library /usr/local/aws/lib/ is not longer available on images, is it right?

    It's a curious question.

    This library was a part of ami-scripts - out first guest agent.
    It was deprecated and removed 5 years ago

    Where you've found a reference to this file?

    Oh, interesting, I started using scalr many years ago :)

    I found the script id=51 (cannot link directly) that is still available that used it.
    Script 50 has 51 as requirement.
    Anyway, not a problem at all, I was playing with scripting to find a good way to set Timezone.

    Should I use cloud-init to set timezone? Is there a way to set user-data on the scalr hosts?
    Should I use Scalr Events? What's the event I should rely on?

    I've written a script for this (ID=11091) that uses the command timezonectl, but I'd like to execute it automatically, after cloud-init and before services starts.

    Is there a way to use the value of "timezone" that I set in the farm, inside the script?

    Scalr utilizes user-data for it's own purposes. It cannot be shared with cloud-init.

    The right place to setup timezone is a blocking HostInit script.
