Fedora Rawhide AWS images are available on Fedora's AWS account, that we
also use to test CentOS Stream:

❯ aws ec2 describe-images --filter
Name=name,Values="Fedora-Cloud-Base-Rawhide*" | jq -r '.Images | .[] |
.Name' | sort | tail -4

This is what we use in Testing Farm <https://docs.testing-farm.io/>.

Do you need some direct access to AWS? We provide testing on AWS instances
as a service.

It is easy, we test all Rawhide builds the second year now against those
AMIs. Just ping me what you require, I bet there is a solution lying around.
