I have been using Amazon's "Free Tier" cloud machines to test EC2 images since 2016. Anyone with an Amazon account (which is free) can spin up a "free tier" machine to run the tests on. With access so easy, is it Fedora's job to provide users/testers with an account with which to test these images?

Actually, I'd prefer we not expand use of that second "community-cloud" account, Dusty. Especially since we seem to be in an uncertain state for it pretty much constantly as our friends at AWS try to work out how to get it into their community umbrella.

Instead, Adam should make use of the existing Fedora AWS account where we can delegate access via IAM and using roles. Check in with the infra team -- they can follow an SOP to make roles, but you'll still need to work with them to tag some resources and set up a policy so you can play in the right sandbox.

Encrypted of course :-P

It would be better to have it be something more managed but I don't have anything
more robust that I can offer right now. Maybe fedora infra does.
