The Fedora Cloud SIG works to make Fedora successful on all major cloud platforms, public and private.

Looking for Fedora EC2 information?

A list of currently supported AMIs is maintained here

Cloud SIG Communications

We don't have a formalized join process. Signing up on the mailing list, coming to Cloud SIG meetings, and joining our IRC channel are good ways to get involved.

Mailing List


Fedora Cloud folks hang out on at #fedora-cloud.


See Cloud_SIG/Meetings page.

Fedora 15 Test Day

The Fedora 15 Cloud SIG Test Day will be held on 28th April. If you want participate in it, please look at Cloud SIG Test Day page.

To-Do List

  • Testing:
    • Can start working on this now with local xen testing - we can test and tune the ks file on rhel 5.3 or newer hosts.
    • Testing without ec2 requires a xen host - once you have a xen host, you can create an image with appliance-tools using the kickstart file from huff.
    • Need to get location of file from huff. Please link it here!
    • Boot image, make sure it works, look for critical packages, report back if things are needed or something doesn't work (or does work).
    • Need to identify list of critical packages
    • Need to identify place for people to list their test results - GOOD OR BAD
  • Documentation
    • Start by documenting how to boot an image from EC2 - ami-988b60f1 is an example, document the use of it, and we change the names to the official release when it is ready.
    • amazon documentation should be linked off the ec2 login page - can be a good reference point. (rbergeron, 21:17:43)
    • need separate docs for publishing to ec2, and booting an image from ec2. But booting and using is the more important, and one that can be worked on now (in fact testers can use it for testing instructions)
