Today in another conversation, I received this feedback about
Fedora cloud images. Not sure if there is bug open for this,
if not, do I file one?

| login, so that its easy for newcomers to embrace cloud images
| Alternative could be to provide out-of-the-box working fedora
| images, which anyone can use to boot using virt-manager,
| virt-* utils or qemu cmdline and be able to login as root or
| non-root with sudo access, also image comes with decent enough
| root disk free space, so that embracing/trying out (which is
| the first time experience) becomes memorable than frustrating
