Allow users to upload custom images
I would love to create custom (pre-configured) images for the Rackspace cloud that users (tech and non-tech) can buy and spin up without having to worry about securing their server or installing software from scratch.
Planned as part of NOVA.
We urgently need this functionality. This should be a "must have" for any "open standards" cloud provider ...
We run a custom kernel and a gentoo portage on our current AWS environment. We'd like to move to Rackspace. I assume we cannot do this without being able to similarly create and upload our custom image.

Be able to share images with multiple accounts with controllable launch permissions would be great. Amazon EC2 supports this!
