This is a very good decision. Image logs good to the log output and console seems to wok fine. Is there a root password setup? Ssh also accepts password login per default. (My favourite would be a standard password people can login on the console, but only allow ssh login via ssh keys. ??) > 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 ).

( eg. should we do a LAMP image ? ) Minimal image first, this one looks good. For people now looking at the new OpenStack Havana release: If you want to setup your own test cloud ontop of CentOS-6.4, please have a look at http://jur-linux.org/testwiki/index.php/CloudLinux/OpenStack best regards, Florian La Roche P.S.: Will the script to setup this CentOS image also be available to allow for many stable/customized versions to show up?
