Yes. The TL;DR for the github exchange is this (for those not following):

We currently use ami_creator several tasks, including the docker images.
Fedora uses another tool suite, appliance-tools to build docker.

We're questioning the merits of adding appliance-tools, where
ami_creator currently fills our need.

So lets see if we can get a broader discussion going here:

KB, can you provide some details on what ami_creator is currently used
for beyond docker?

Adam/Matt, could you provide some detail as to the benefits of
appliance-tools, and the capabilities?

If there's enough overlap, it may make sense to move. If not, maybe we
keep using ami_creator and look at other areas of cooperation.

Folks interested in the Cloud SIG, thoughts, comments, fact-based-opinions?
