= Proposed Self Contained Change: Move to ImageFactory For Cloud Image 
Creation =

Create images using Anaconda in Koji rather than appliance-creator. Allows 
non-scratch builds with fedmsg integration for upload service, and also could 
produce official Docker images. 

== Detailed Description ==
Jay Greguske recently added a feature to koji that allows it to create full 
system disk images using Image Factory. These images can be output both as raw 
and qcow2 disk images, as well as OVA/OVF bundles compatible with OVirt, 
VMWare and RHEV-M. They are created by running Anaconda kickstart installs in 
virt containers and then packaging/encapsulating the results. 

== Scope ==
* Proposal owners: The Image Factory support in Fedora koji has already landed 
and images are already being built using this technique.  The work for F21 
should mainly involve making sure that the existing cloud kickstart files work 
when run directly by Anaconda and making any chances needed to ensure that 
they do.
