Ok if I understand you right you start a virt-install command with a
kickstarter file ( equivalent of a debian preseed for Debian ).
Then you from the raw/ qcow2 disk image, imagefactory creates the extra
VM configuration like *.ovf description and upload to the target cloud.

Am I missing something ?

I could not find for instance by a quick grep at the image factory code,
where do you create the vagrant user and give the sudo rights.

Another question do you run the whole build process as root ?
