I wonder if it would make sense to have just these as a tarball
(or RPM?), so people could install the bulk of the RPMs using yum
(following http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstart)
and just unpacking your configuration package on top ?

It would make it a little bit easier to try out other Fedora
versions, without needing to download a whole new disk image
from your site - should save some bandwidth.
