I was thinking of using virt-builder[1] which is already part of Fedora.  
Personally I would stick with the Fedora tools, and not use yet 
something else again. However, I'm more than happy if James builds and 
publishes one or more VMs for the test days, of course he is free to use 
whatever tools he likes :-)

The images should be minimal, and I do not expect them to be bigger than 
512MB when compressed. Best would be to host them on the 
download.gluster.org server, at the same location of the packages.
