Fedora 19 Release Candidate 1 cloud images are now available from:


in either qcow2 or raw.xz format. You should be able to use Glance in
OpenStack to just import the qcow2 images directly and go.

They're also in Amazon EC2 in the US East region (us-east-1):

  ami-79196a10 for x86_64
  ami-ef1b6886 for i386

Thanks to Dennis Gilmore in Fedora Release Engineering for the extra work to
make this happen.

The images are configured with "fedora" as the default user with
passwordless sudo. You can change this behavior by passing different
configuration data via the user-data in either OpenStack or EC2. For
example, to allow direct root login and to suppress the creation of the
'fedora' user, use

disable_root: 0

(The first line is identifying the userdata type, not a comment.)
