(Also, officially, hello centos-devel! I'm one of the new guys here -
been working on growing the community around oVirt, OpenStack on CentOS
& RHEL and a few other bits & pieces as part of my job in Red Hat - very
eager to see effective collaboration between projects with CentOS)

I definitely see provision of cloud instances and collaboration on what
infra providers need to be separate problem spaces. I was thinking
"cloud infrastructure" when thinking about a cloud SIG, but perhaps it
makes sense to frame things as you suggest.

What I would like to see is a CentOS stack which allows all of the cloud
storage, networking, virt management and IaaS projects to show
themselves in a good light - we will need newer stuff that isn't
available in RHEL 6 to do so (and the sam will doubtless happen during
the RHEL 7 release cycle), and it makes sense for us to talk & share the
burden of supporting those newer components on top of core CentOS.
