That is an app store.  You want the cloud image(s) to be "app/stack"
oriented?  How is that not going to run into literally the same
problem you describe with having python installed?  What if someone
wants version XYZ of drupal instead of what is in Fedora?

Why wouldn't you instead focus on the base cloud image, and then if
you want the app store model have a backend service that generated a
"app/stack" image on the fly for someone to download.  That seems a
lot more flexible than generating 30 images that people might be
interested in but probably only 6 will ever be used, etc.  Then you'd
already have tooling other people could use to create their own cloud
images that aren't in the app store.

Such as?
