For those who have not already installed the dependencies and would like to
explore this version, I've put RC1 on an EC2 image in the east ami-32c13c5b
islandora-orbiscas-ubuntu32-lucid-2011-04-02 (I recommend searching by name
rather than AMI as my intent is to only keep the latest version as I update
it). Root password is "islandora" and a README file in root's home explains
the instance.

As I am new to islandora myself and haven't had a chance to do much testing,
I can't guarantee that I did things right. However, what little I have been
able to check seems OK and the components seem to be working together so
it's probably not horrible for poking around purposes. If you try this and
encounter problems, naturally I would be glad to know.
