All in all, I think
it looks reasonably decent. I have some comments on
some of the descriptions - I think the Overview page on the wiki has a
lot of usefulness in terms of description of community/product.
My other note is that - esp. in the "company description" since it's the
page about "fedora" the distro - we should probably be more consistent
in our references to Fedora vs. the Fedora Project -

Red Hat invests in Fedora to encourage collaboration and incubate

One thing to consider: Is it worth highlighting more specifically that
Fedora is the upstream for RHEL?

updated image spins. Open to suggestions on how best to do this.]
fine, though I think it would be good to make clear that it's not
something like a "nightly image" kind of thing. We don't have to drill
into details on "how we'd do that" right now, I agree it's useful to
keep the option open.
Official Fedora Cloud image.
Fedora is a Linux-based operating system built on our community's four
foundations: freedom, features, friends, and first. The Fedora Cloud image
in EC2 provides a functional core on top of which any of tens of thousands
of free and open source software packages can be easily added.

I guess this is more of a technical question: How does the above link
accurately represent things if we - as you described above - have
different "more updated but still F17" images? Do we think people will
be confused / looking for F17 - date/morepreciseversion/etc?

Fedora's EC2 images follow standard EC2 login conventions, meaning that
root login is disabled, but sudo access is granted. The default username
for the images is ec2-user.

True for all.
This is not really true in EC2, I don't think we're doing
non-us regions, are we? - does AWS marketplace provide wider availability?
