[CentOS-devel] Few questions on cloud images

I have few questions related to the cloud images provides for c8s and
c9s, i.e.:
- https://cloud.centos.org/centos/8-stream/x86_64/images/
- https://cloud.centos.org/centos/9-stream/x86_64/images/

1) I see the c9s images are regularly updated, while the c8s images not;
is this wanted, or simply a mistake/miss somewhere? If so, will they be
kept up-to-date just like the c9s images?

2) are the Vagrant images there officially supported? Let's say you use
one, and find a bug; then check on a "classic" installation
(baremetal/VM), and the bug isn't there; can users report problems in
those cases?

3) would it be possible to have either unversioned or "-latest" symlinks
for the latest versions of all the files (i.e. images, checksums, etc)?
This way, it will be much easier for users to fetch the latest versions
with no need to change URLs frequently. Of course, the assumption is
that users of this are always willing to use the latest version.
