Sounds good, I just noticed that the CI server for CloudStack is also
doing the test runs on CentOS already!

Do you have a view on the idea of a single Cloud SIG, with participation
from various projects being able to build various Variants ?

And finally, getting a mile ahead of myself already, do you have the
possibility of running CloudStack from livemedia ?

We've got the Cloud Images hacksession for CloudStack already setup at
the dojo ( http://wiki.centos.org/Events/Dojo/Brussels2014 ); maybe we
can use time there to host a face2face Cloud Image SIG as well.

( btw, I am assuming there is momentum behind the idea of splitting the
Cloud Infra from Cloud Instance/Image efforts, it seems to make sense in
my head )

regards and welcome to the larger CentOS Ecosystem
