The CentOS 7 AMIs for eu-west-1 (ami-6e28b517) and eu-west-3 (ami-bfff49c2) are OK.

But the CentOS 6 AMIs in the same regions (ami-a625b8df and ami-66fd4b1b) are not.

Still the issue even after 4 months. Images weren't refreshed yet.

The public CentOS7 ami for the eu-west-1 region (ami-6e28b517) has marketplace codes attached - is there any way of acquiring a official, public AMI without these codes?

Please fix this! Trying to automate creation of an encrypted AMI and this breaks it.

Any update on this? still all the AMIs have the Marketplace Product tag and this makes it impossible to move them around accounts or use them as a base for your own AMIs

Where are the scripts that generate these? I could take a crack at a PR if I knew where to send it
