Glad you find them helpful... The kickstart files are in place for koji
builds, but should be usable with anything that uses kickstart.  I
believe koji is using appliance-creator to do the actual image builds.
Just a warning, there is some post work required for taking the images
from appliance-creator -> EC2.  Jay has been working on redoing scripts
to make them publicly consumable and they should also end up in the
cloud-kickstarts repo.
