Good day,

I'm looking for a resolution to a small issue with the cloud image
repository for the latest CentOS-7 image.

As far as I understand, the latest release of the CentOS-7 image should
always be posted to

The checksum of this file should match the highest numbered version of the
cloud image listed in http://cloud.centos.org/centos/7/images/sha256sum.txt

However, the actual checksum for CentOS-7-x86_64-GenericCloud.qcow2 is
returning as
b56ed1a3a489733d3ff91aca2011f8720c0540b9aa27e46dd0b4f575318dd1fa which
matches for CentOS-7-x86_64-GenericCloud-1608.qcow2 but NOT

The latest image available should be CentOS-7-x86_64-GenericCloud-1612.qcow2
with a checksum of

To further the confusion, the 'Last modified' image is
and not -1612.

I picked up on this discrepancy because I have a script that monitors &
updates our openstack images when new images become available for various

If someone could please correct these inconsistencies it would be greatly
