The Cloud SIG test day for Fedora 15 is will be this Thursday [1]. The
focus will be on using BoxGrinder [2] and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud
(EC2) [3] with Fedora 15.

BoxGrinder is "a set of projects that help you grind out appliances for
multiple virtualization and Cloud providers." Another way to put it is
that BoxGrinder makes it easy to create and deploy custom installations
of Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS to your favorite KVM, Xen
or VMWare based clouds. This includes private clouds and EC2.

Live images, prebuilt EC2 amis and meta-appliances [4] will be available
on the test day if you don't already have Fedora 15 installed. Detailed
instructions for how to test are available on the wiki [1].

There are test cases for BoxGrinder that can be run without an AWS
account for EC2 but testing on Amazon's infrastructure and other cloud
providers (BoxGrinder also supports ElaticHosts, SKALI Cloud, Open
Hosting and Serverlove) would be very much appreciated.

Get ready for some cloudy good-ness and please help test if you have the
