[CentOS-virt] Official AWS Centos AMI and new instance types

Hello, list.

Yesterday I tried changing the instance type of my c1.medium instances on
AWS to c3.large and I wasn't able to do so.

It looks like the official Centos AMI on market place is still not ready
for c3.large.

This is the error message I received:

"The instance configuration for this AWS Marketplace product is not
supported. Please see
http://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp?sku=7w73f3vx0zywcfq1izrshkpjl for more
information about supported instance types, regions, and operating systems."

c3.large provides a huge balance improvement when it comes to cost X
benefits. This instance has almost the same price of the old c1.medium ($
0.150 vs $ 0.145 / hourly) and has more CPU power and double memory (7 ECUs
and 3.7G).

Given that fact, I believe we'll have lots of people switching from
c1.medium to c3.large soon and therefore it'd be wise to have the official
AMI ready.

Besides c3.large, Amazon has released several new instance types and
according to their market place info, I believe that the official AMI is
not ready for those as well.

Is it possible to get it ready?

Thank you.
