The cloud image is not only used by the cloud providers. As a normal
user, I use it extensively on my laptop.

Some days ago, a LLVM developer ask me how to setup an arm64 VM
quickly, we just used the arm64 openstack cloud image[1], and it works
really fine on our laptop.
Then he also wants to setup a powerpc VM, as a result, the only VM
image we got is built by aurel32 6 years ago. (I know the powerpc is
another story since it's a port arch.) But if more archs of the cloud
image are available, it would help a lot for developers.
