Hi Rich, thanks for the ping again.

We have been in touch with KB (Nux! and I mostly) and submitted our scripts for building a
cloudstack centOS templates upstream. It works and was merged at some point, but it got pulled
back because we stick some scripts in there.

Bottom line is that I feel we need to work further upstream in cloud-init to improve cloudstack
support there, once that’s done, we can come back to the CentOS builds for cloudstack.

fwiw, our install base is probably ~70% centOS and we already have centOS7 support.
