Not at this moment, its a resource issue more than anything else. Tru
and I were discussing doing a refresh in the next few days and I will
make sure the raw images are published to cloud.centos.org
Please note that these images contain a rc script to get the user
metadata into place, and so might not be of much use outside AWS or
Eucalyptus which expose that metadata service. The CentOS-5 images will
be even more restricted, in that they will have the kernel-xen setup to
boot as default ( for AWS ).
Any help to build generic images would be appreciated!

This is absolutely the best place for the question, I apologies for me
rather delayed response.
For the sake of completeness, its worth noting that lots of irc chatter
that EL-6.4 will contain cloud-init, I hope its 0.7.x based, which would
solve a lot of issues. Failing that, perhaps we should look at bringing
in cloud-init ourselves ( or a better alternative )
