Current status

Detailed Description

Fedora Cloud images are not updated after the initial release of the most current Fedora version. This can leave outstanding issues with the images that can impact the user experience long after they have been addressed by package updates. Providing updated Cloud images across all supported cloud providers on a monthly basis post release will ensure end users are getting the best Fedora Cloud experience possible.

Benefit to Fedora

Update Cloud images will provide a better end user experience as it will ensure it is up to date with the most current packages. This gives users faster Fedora Cloud provisioning times and a secure out of the box Cloud instance.
