That sounds good. Yes, code modification is not needed for
images to run on Synnefo, that's why I thought it will be probably
rather easy for anyone of you guys who has experience with
kickstart and rpm-based distros to help. We can have an official
CentOS image for Synnefo with not so much of an effort.

Unfortunately, my team comes from a Debian background and
we have zero experience with kickstart :(
However, we are willing to help however we can.

So, what do you think are the next steps?
