[CentOS-devel] CentOS-6.4 OpenStack testing cloud images

Hi,

CentOS-6.4 i386 and x86_64 images targetting OpenStack are now available
for testing at http://dev.centos.org/centos/hvm/ Images are available
for KVM, Hyper-V, VMware, Xen and any other HVM hypervisor.  Although,
the 6.x kernel has the pv support enabled, so should work fine under
paravirt Xen as well.

Images are published as raw, qcow2 qcow2compressed and vpc ( vhd ) for
both i386 and x86_64 CentOS-6.4 The images represent media versions, and
have not had an update run against them. Its highly recommended that in
testing, please check this version *then* do a yum update and repeat
tests to ensure that there is no test result change in the 6.4+updates
tree's.

Keeping in line with the general CentOS Cloud strategy, ie to help
people migrate or investigate cloud instances, we expect the images to
represent as close as possible to a real machine CentOS install ( ie. no
cloud specific user, people use root to login, selinux is enabled ).
With some exceptions like isdn support is removed, as is cups and
bluetooth since those things make little sense on a cloud instance (
nothing stopping the users from installing them later if they need to ).

Also, cloud-init is included. This is based on the 0.7.x stream and
based off sources published by Red Hat in their RHEL-Common/ tree.

Note: these images have not been through a regular CentOS QA cycle, and
I am requesting people to actually test these in either dev or test
environments that run the hypervisor being tested, the cloud controller
being tested and provide feedback here to the mailing list. Please
clearly indicate what hypervisor was used, what cloud controller and
versions of the relevant software.

As a baseline the CentOS CI tests (
https://gitorious.org/testautomation/t_functional ) is a good place to
start, if you just need tests to run ( although these tests mostly
target machine instances, its still a good baseline for these images ).
And while you are at it, please feel free to submit cloud, virtualised,
instance and image specific tests.

The overall aim is to be ready for inclusion of Cloud image release in
sync with iso and distro release for next-version ( 6.5 most likely ).

Apart from baseline testing, I am also looking for feedback on package
manifests included in the images ( should we add something ? should we
remove something ? ) and if there is any need / scope for publishing
specific role images as well ? ( eg. should we do a LAMP image ? )

Finally, I want to thank Alessandro and Octavian from Cloudbase
Solutions for helping get this effort off the ground, and then their
patience as I went through the mechanics of automating the build process
and getting the images ready.

Enjoy!
