Yes, so moving to ami-creator might be a good choice.

I'm told by Fedora release engineering folks that we can't use that
-- the builders run in VMs, so virt-install isn't an option, and since
livemedia-creator is based around that, it's not available to us.
Its not available because ive not yet worked out the magic to be able
to create a chroot with the target bits i.e. f18 and run
livemedia-creator in the chroot and have it spin up a vm and do the
install etc and work as it needs to. Its a case of where the tool was
written without thought for the requirements on how it would be run.
we have dedicated physical hardware for building the images on. thats
not at all the issue. either im not clear in how i explain things or
people are only half listening.
We could maybe engineer an alternate build process using the
cloud, adapting livecd creator to run on a cloud instance rather than
with virt locally. Or something. Any ideas?
On another note, Boxgrinder also is based around appliance creator,
and it'd be nice to play nicely with those people too.
Boxgrinder is not a viable option at all.
