Seth has graciously offered to review our offerings and give us a hand if we run into problems.  I've been talking with him today in detail and I may have narrowed it down to an issue outside of the Fedora/CentOS distributions themselves.

jforbes pointed me to the Fedora Cloud SIG group today - I wasn't aware of it before.  I work at Rackspace in a systems operations role within the Slicehost/Cloud Servers group.  As I discussed with Seth, I'm one of the biggest proponents of Fedora, CentOS and Red Hat within the Cloud segment and I look forward to working more with members of your team!
