This patch fixes the creation of VM images. Previously, FC12 images were
created but the files necessary for FC12 image creation are no longer
available in the public repositories. This patch now switches it to
create FC14 images. To get such a new image one may want to remove all
content in /var/cache/libvirt-tck. I takes a long time for the image to
install, though.
We can probably do a little refactoring to use the libguestfs
appliance image soon, which will make things simpler...

You say 'soon' -- is it not possible to do, yet ?

The new FC14 image takes a lot longer to boot. Rather than waiting a
fixed timeout during which the VM presumably has booted it is now
waiting for the VM to become pingable and then starts the actual tests.
...and libguestfs can boot in a couple of seconds.
I looked at the contents of the .img files with libguestfs-1.8.6-1. I am missing an ssh daemon. Is that one supposed to be installed upon the first image start? Also, how does one use libguestfs to create a bootable image?
