Yeah, these are all excellent questions and we will want to have Cloud
WG representation at the meeting. My understanding right now is that
the Cloud SIG is planning to discontinue the traditional cloud image
in favor of focusing entirely on Fedora Atomic. It has been expressed
that it would still be beneficial for there to be some sort of Fedora
image out there and that perhaps some form of Fedora Server would fit
that bill. We need to work out what exactly that means. Jon, if you
(or anyone else) would like to own this investigation, that would be
very helpful.
