We should try getting this working sooner rather than later so we can 
use it for building images in a manner that's easy to include in the 
release process.  The word on the street is that Koji can spin appliance 
images of some sort; perhaps we could leverage that somehow.

It's a long and obnoxious process to do it the "right" way.  Thankfully 
Eucalyptus is building a dedicated release engineering team whose job 
is, among other things, to make packaging less of a pain.

I think we should port cloud-init to Fedora so users can configure new 
instances using a popular, existing method that we don't have to build 
from the ground up.  I'm looking into that at the moment; does anyone 
else want to help?
