Sounds good to me if we trim it down to a few instance types that we think
will cover Xen and KVM based booting in EC2. For Fedora CoreOS we'll be doing
some automated testing in EC2. I don't know if we have a certain set of instance
types we'll be using for that, but the information that Matt provided should
help us decide.
