My personal view is that it would seem strange to have one SIG per project, a single cloud SIG will require coordination efforts amongst project to agree on a somewhat common framework for build. We could probably start with a single cloud SIG to discuss and identify requirements/issues and then see if a split is necessary.

From a user standpoint it would be great to be able to choose an official CentOS distro that packages one preferred Cloud IaaS solution.

We are not doing it right now, but it should be do-able. Easiest would probably be a live version of our Devcloud (single image that uses nested virt to simulate a full cloud).
