Apologies, I sent this to KB's direct mailbox earlier today and apparently
I didn't send it to centos-devel. So I'm forwarding it now.

Given that there are at least two other projects keen to make this happen,
it would be great if the Cloud SIG could be a single multicloud target.



I'm Jaime Melis from the OpenNebula project [1]. We have been involved with
CentOS for the past year making a stable Cloud Management Platform [2]. I
like to hereby propose a new CentOS variant, namely the OpenNebula variant.

This variant would add three roles to the CentOS installation:

* OpenNebula Frontend
* OpenNebula Node KVM
* OpenNebula Node Xen

The work for the Frontend and Node KVM roles has been completed and is
ready to
be released. The Node Xen role is still in progress although close to being

This work should take place under the Cloud SIG umbrella, which right as of
doesn't exist, so I would like to also propose the creation of this group
the aim of making the major cloud platforms work wth Centos.
