Hi Dennis:

So qcow2 works well for KVM - but perhaps providing just a raw image
and allowing folks to use qemu-img or whatever suits their fancy to
work. Of course, if we really want to do all of the work, we should
build raw, qcow2, vmdk, and vhd in addition to the EC2 AMIs.

And to your main question - why wouldn't they be downloadable from the mirrors?
