While I can't say for sure what the current hangup is, I can tell you
what makes the process so difficult:
Uploading an EBS-backed image is somewhat more convoluted than uploading
a regular image because you have to boot up a virtual machine inside
EC2, create a virtual disk to install Fedora onto, copy the contents of
the entire image over the Internet onto that disk, and then create a
snapshot of the disk. Registering it is rather quick and painless, but
until euca2ools-1.3.1-12 (which is on its way to updates-testing for all
releases and EPEL) one had to write a custom script to do it.
The fact that BoxGrinder automates this entire process is the reason so
many people recommend it.
