As announced in September, the Gentoo in the Cloud AMIs have been retired. Since January 2014, the Gentoo in the Cloud AMIs have been succeeded by the Pygoscelis Papua Linux AMIs, which are our newer unofficial Gentoo builds. The Pygoscelis Papua Linux AMIs will continue to built.
The Gentoo in the Cloud AMIs have been removed from all the regions except us-east-1, where they will remain for archival purposes. If you wish to copy any of the old images, our articles HowTo: Copy EC2 EBS AMIs Between Accounts and HowTo: Move an EC2 EBS AMI From One Region to Another may be of use.

In January 2014 our Pygoscelis Papua Linux EC2 images succeeded our Gentoo in the Cloud EC2 images. In November 2014 we will retire the Gentoo in the Cloud images. They will remain on the us-east-1 region for reference purposes, but will be removed from the other regions. The Pygoscelis Papua Linux images will continue to be produced. If you wish to copy any of the old images, our articles HowTo: Copy EC2 EBS AMIs Between Accounts and HowTo: Move an EC2 EBS AMI From One Region to Another may be of use.
Copying AMIs between accounts is difficult, because even if an image is public, the snapshot behind it is private by default. Here we’ll talk about ways of getting around it.
Moving an EC2 EBS AMI from one region to another has become easy. Here we’ll show how to do it.
