Ok, Dogi and I spoke on the phone: he also doesn't have time to prepare
a new VM template based on CentOS.

Henry: to speed up things, I'd recommend you install and configure a
CentOS instance in kvm and then send us the qcow disk image. The
compressed file shouldn't be larger than 1GB. Please send us the root
password so we can log in through the console to setup networking. After
the machine is in production, you'll be responsible for security
updates, monitoring and backups.

BTW, dogi pointed out that we're already hosting a VM for openqwaq based
on Debian 6.0, but since September nobody has been working on it. The
sysadmin is Adam Helsene, from NDSU. Does anyone know what happened?
