So, this adds yet another to our rather teetering pile of deliverables
to consider the relative importance / status of, and for releng to
generate zillions of times per cycle.

What "Fedora" exactly is the image going to contain? Fedora Server?
Fedora Cloud? Will it be a part of either of those products? If not,
what is its status, exactly? Who's responsible for it? Is it considered
a primary or frontline or whatever Fedora deliverable? Who's going to
test it? How's it going to be promoted in relation to all our other

(I'm late on this, and I see the Change has been approved already, but
I'm not sure if any of the above questions were answered).
