Dont think adding -NetworkManager* is enough in the packages section, I
still have nm-cli in the instance post install with that.

Also, do you really need the dhcp setup for eth0 ? can you even predict
eth0 is going to be the default first network interface ?

Finally, for the cloud-init, Can you try using the cloud-init from
c7-extras on buildlogs/ for a couple of testing images ? lets see if we
can adopt and stabalise that locally in centos extras/

Finally, I think this ks is for CentOS-6... is it really working for you
CentOS-7 as well ?
