Fabian, thank you for making these AMIs directly available without 
having to deal with marketplace subscriptions.

A couple of follow-up questions:

1. Would it be possible to make the underlying snapshots public? That 
way, users could use the "Copy AMI" functionality without getting the 
"You do not have permission to access the storage of this ami" error.  
Also, it would be easier to create volumes from that snapshot for future 
troubleshooting.  (The underlying snapshots for the Fedora releases 
appear to be public)

2. It might be worth mentioning on the wiki page that the AMIs are owned 
by 125523088429 (which appears to own the Fedora images as well).

3. When spot checking the AMIs listed on 
https://wiki.centos.org/Cloud/AWS I can find the CentOS Linux 6 AMI, but 
not the CentOS Linux 7 AMI (at least in us-west-2).

Thanks again for getting all this working!
