Currently I have ssh keys getting imported but having some problems getting the disk to dynamically resize to the flavor template as well as the hostname set in horizon to be pushed into the image. Does anyone have any howtos or suggestions on how to get this done? Is there cloud-init for centos just like ubuntu? I would also be interested in how to do this with debian as well.

It would help if you'd bring that up with upstream :)
I'm interested in cloud-init working in the most places it can.  I'll try
to pull in the sysvinit scripts that Pádraig added and grab other changes
that are there.

If anyone has features / issues they'd like addressed in cloud-init,
please feel free to ping me (smoser).  I'll most likely ask you to open a
bug at http://bugs.launchpad.net/cloud-init , and may even invite you to
submit a patch.  One way or another, though, I'm interested in making
cloud-init better, so comments/concerns/participation is welcome and
