Ding ding ding. :) I'm cc'ing the illustrious, world-famous cloud sig 
mailing list (https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/cloud for 
those of you who want to get in on the action). Whoever responds there 
first: You're tasked with removing advisory-board from your reply. :)

I'd love to see this mini- (or perhaps mega-, I'm not sure how enormous 
the scope is here) project move forward - I wonder if this is something 
we can pull together before we do F17 alpha or beta, so we can get it 
tested and make sure our Beefy Miracle is kosher on AWS/S3/EC2 for 
final. :) Some of that presumably depends on the bandwidth of mdomsch 
and dgilmore, but there are probably bits and pieces where others can 
pitch in.

Shameless advertising: If you're interested in learning about how 
mirrormanager works, or interested in learning how EC2/S3/etc. work, 
this is probably a great spot to learn something -- and I hear that 
Cloudy Knowledge may be useful in futuretimes.
