Agreed, we certainly will not be creatin ISOs or any other installable
image eiether, but I am  open to discussions there.  Review is important,
which is why we are trying to make images available throughout the F15

As for a git repository, the kickstart files are currently being
maintained in git://git.fedorahosted.org/cloud-kickstarts.git 
This doesnt work wth koji at the moment, but it is a place for people to
read/comment/suggest changes and check out to create their own appliances.
