        This seems to be something that might belong on the
 Wiki. Looking, I see we have some of this information:

  + https://wiki.debian.org/Cloud This is an overview of tools to
    interact with cloud services, and a section on building Debian cloud
    images, and a nice where to find more informatio section
  + https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DPL/OfficialImages The page above
    links here, which is the requirements document for official debian
  + https://wiki.debian.org/Cloud/Images_requirements is a placeholder
    for what distinguishes a cloud image from a regular debian
  + https://wiki.debian.org/Testing%20Debian%20Cloud%20Images A place
    holder for testing cloud images

        I think the section on "Building Debian cloud images" on the top
 level https://wiki.debian.org/Cloud could link to a new Official debian
 cloud images page, which contains the information above.

        I can try and gather all the information in this thread and
 create a draft version of that page, and we can add more information as
 we go along. It should show up as WIKI.D.O/Cloud/OfficialImages
