FWIW, I am currently working on two pkg for EC2 (they are currently in wip):


So all this dance will be easier to get done once finished. I consider
ec2-api-tools ready, but will upload both simultaneously (as well as
writing something in the wiki to use them)

The ami-tools is the one to generate the AMIs. Currently, only Solaris,
and to some extent Linux (I'd rather say: "certain Linux distros") are
supported. The support scripts are written in Ruby, so I had to find my
way through the language first before starting to write down the
modules. It's fairly trivial though.
