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, 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.
