RE Update default template from CentOS 5.5 to CentOS 7
While it's good idea to bump up the current default VM template "CentOS 5.5(64-bit) no GUI (KVM)" to a newer version. I doubt the candidate would be CentOS 7. Reason being the supportability of the hypervisor. The candidate should be supported across all the versions of hypervisors that next version of CloudStack would support. To support CentOS 7 we might have to drop support for few of the versions listed below.
From 4.11 documentation the minimum versions supported are,
XenServer versions 6.1, 6.2 SP1, 6.5, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2 with latest hotfixes
VMware versions 5.0 Update 3, 5.1 Update 3, 5.5 Update 3b, 6.0 Update 2, and 6.5 GA

Subject: Update default template from CentOS 5.5 to CentOS 7
I would like to propose updating our current default VM template "CentOS
5.5(64-bit) no GUI (KVM)" to a newer version (e.g. CentOS 7). I also think
that we could benefit from a wider set of templates offering also Debian,
Ubuntu, and Fedora.
