I just wrote a blog post somewhat relating to this which some of you
good folks may have already seen on planet.fp.o, but I'll advertise it
here briefly anyhow:


The short version: the Cloud SIG is planning on having a bunch of
goodies, including BoxGrinder, OpenStack, CloudFS, Sheepdog, and
(HOPEFULLY) Deltacloud submitted as features for F15.  Most of them
are already in the works.  Links / info about those projects are in
the aforementioned blog post link.

But I happen to think that having more of a set of building blocks for
cloud applications and management in Fedora is VERY, very exciting. :)
