Last I heard, the builders were going to be changed to use a VM to
fully encapsulate the build. Don't know what the timelines were on
this. There was some talk of using libguestfs to upload and/or
download files into the VMs which is why I heard about this.
The problem with using a VM created using the latest unstable Fedora
is that the latest unstable Fedora might not be working. Perhaps we
could always build Fedora n+1 on top of Fedora n.

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines. Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
