Hi Steve,

I upload them to the HP cloud, but also over here:

Though this image contains the bootlogd patch to support logging on
multiple consoles. I'm currently trying to make this updated in
proposed-updates though (see: #767202).

Let's stick to the plan of distributing the images together with the
Debian CDs. It's not the role of Debian to advertize for a particular
provider like Amazon (even though it's IMO ok to maintain the images
within large cloud service providers).

You may also know that we already provide some images within AWS. See
the debian-cloud list. I would recommend anyone that maintain images to
advertize about them in that list rather than in debian-devel or on the
Debian web site.
