Is there a possibility to test the image if i'm not a DD?
Absolutely. The images created have been marked as public, so you can find them right now in the AMI catalogue in each Region:

You can spin these up in any AWS account (check out http://aws.amazon.com/free).I have not done a Wheezy AMI in here just yet, as I would like to stick to the Stable release right now and get that 'published' as Official first.
Have you tried to build a Wheezy-AMI? I tried many times, but failed. If help is needed i would like to contribute.
I've been using the ec2debian-build-ami that Anders Ingemann has put on git hub (https://github.com/andsens/ec2debian-build-ami).
Since any AMI we publish as Official will be used by many people in their CloudFormation, AutoScale, Amazon Beanstalk configurations, we'll be committing to keeping these images available in our account for quite some time; in order to maintain consistency and good (trustworthy) maintenance I think we should concentrate on stability of these (base) images -- but that's just my opinion.
I feel we may want to commit to:
* Produce new AMIs for each point release of stable (eg, we're on 6.0.6 now)
* Keep existing point releases of current stable (eg, 6.0.[0-5], but starting from this point in time)
* Keep the initial and final point releases of old-stable, over time (eg: 5.0.0 and 5.0.10, some time after new stable has come out - ie, purge intermediate releases 5.0.[1-9])
* Remove old-old-stable (eg everything else that's older)
With 2 editions (32, 64 bit), that could be 18 AMIs per region if we had every previous release, times 7 regions = 126 AMIs.
While we do want to test Wheezy AMIs, we should probably not encourage that for end user access; indeed, this is something that Anders and I were discussing (off list) in the last few hours.
