Hi Trish - so the default AMI that Colin has provided is a basic 9.0-CURRENT system image (minus ports i'm afraid). but it does work!  I got pulled into something last night, but i was pretty much finished creating an AMI for myself that does have ports and sudo pre-installed already (this would be a starting point for setting up AMI's running other 3rd party apps for testing).  I'll make that public and post it to talk@ later today hopefully.
