I see that this has already been asked several times:,,, etc.

Which of these guides should I use? Why hasn't an Ubuntu 14.04 AMI been
made public by the StarCluster development team yet? Are there plans to do
this? Meanwhile, could someone make their AMI public?

It seems there is widespread interest in updated AMIs (EBS and HVM-EBS

Thanks so much,
