Thanks, that's where we want the image to end up anyhow :)

Are they really OpenStack specific though, or are they more 'Cloud
Enabled CentOS images'?

For Fedora/RHEL, we just have one qcow2 image that works across a
variety of Cloud platforms.

Isn't that a potential security issue?  On RHEL guest images we
explicitly disable root passwords and recommend folks who want to use
root passwords in their image to set them explicitly after downloading
an image via a tool like virt-sysprep.
