Sounds good to me. I will have images built for AWS pretty much as soon
as "stable" points to stretch on the mirrors. The details will be
documented at https://wiki.debian.org/Cloud/AmazonEC2Image/Stretch as
with the previously released "beta" stretch images.

Fair enough. User experience should be about the same either way.
Details to be worked out are pretty much entirely internal, in terms of
various image generation workflows and where they run.

I believe most of the details you're looking for are covered on the
https://wiki.debian.org/Cloud/AmazonEC2Image/Stretch, except for support
and documentation details. In general support is via
debian-cloud@lists.d.o, #debian-cloud, or the cloud.debian.org bts
pseudopackage. Documentation is wiki.debian.org, though there's not a
lot to speak of.
