I'll file a ticket soon.

Thanks. I think documenting use on a wide variety of platforms will
really help with adoption, and it is encouraging to know you have
contacts to talk to.
Let me know what resources you need in the HP Cloud (OpenStack on top
of KVM) and I'll try to make it happen. Matt has a gratis account but
if you need a more formal Fedora account just shout. As long as you're
not planing to upload terabytes of data blobs or try to crunch the
latest CERN dataset we should be Ok.
I would project that myself and perhaps two or three other writers would
use whatever platforms we gain access to. Nothing intensive; just spin
up an instance, make sure the commands function as expected, experiment
a little, and destroy the instance; maybe an hour or two at a time. I'll
defer you on the best way to handle accounts.

Good! I'll have more, then :P Now that I've got the door open, hopefully
more writers will be participating and reaching out as well.
