Hi Karanbir,

in principle a good idea, should be (from my point of view) extended to
something like BFO (http://boot.fedoraproject.org/) to make it possible to
install on physical machines as well. So something like USB boot stick which
get standard configurations based on kickstart files, do the installation,
report back to console and central QA server and do the next install on the
list (the only question is how to make previous runs persistent so
installations won't be done twice until QA system request a second install
because of a failure).

- lshw
- dmesg
- maybe bootchart

GIT is a good idea but you need a wrapper around that check successful runs
and shorten this one to profile xyz on hardware abc has no problem.

See above, an USB stick for real hardware and an ISO for virtual hardware
will probably work best.
