Yes, we should make the page more clear about what process was used to get the official ones vs. what you can do with BoxGrinder.

Sean, everything on that page is up to date. You just need to create your own appliance definition. Here you have a sample for Fedora 16 JEOS (save it as f16.appl):

name: f16
  name: fedora
  version: 16

More details here:

Then build it by executing boxgrinder-build f16.appl -p ec2 -d ebs. If you have troubles, please tell me.
