FESCo's suggestion is something along the lines of, "Dear
VPS Provider, we noticed that you provide Fedora 9 and 10. Those releases are
end-of-life. Would you consider offering Fedora 12? Would you like assistance in making
an image for your needs? We have F12 images in formats X, Y, and Z available. Please
contact cloud(a)l.fp.o if you have questions." Of course if we only offer one image
type such a message will have to be different if it even makes sense to send one at all.
For most of the VPS providers, "cloud" isn't even something they'd use
to describe themselves. Reaching out and contacting them makes great
sense, but they really want more, eg, general anaconda/Fedora help as
opposed to help with something that's really cloud-y.
Of course, I hate the word cloud still ;-)
