I updated the said image as follows:
- root password has been changed to something very long and weird, 
please use the ssh key to access the machine
- I added a couple of scripts to perform the following:
              * resize the / (and only) partition to maximum
              * restore proper SELinux context on /root/.ssh/ (so key 
auth works)

The following remain unchanged:
- EPEL remains installed and active
- SELinux on
- iptables off
- ntp on
- console=ttyS0
- size ~800 MB

To add it in glance run:

glance add name=centos6_64bit_nux is_public=true disk_format=qcow2 

I'll try to get a 32 bit version over the weekend.

Feel free to reply with suggestions/comments/complaints/etc.
