When I got in touch with amazon a long long time back, the aim was to 
plumb in something into the centos buildsystems, so that we are able to 
churn out an 'official' CentOS image at the same time as we do a release 
for isos etc. They were quite keen initially, but something happened - 
might be related to Martin Buhr moving, and they lost most interest.

I would *really* like to get that project back on track. If not then we 
can go the route of just having images that others can use, perhaps not 
from something that amazon provide themselves.

Its always good to know that the work is appreciated! Btw, I've heard 
good things about what you guys are doing at rightscale as well.
