Well, you just mentioned it : imagefactory (and oz) and it's available 
in cbs but so far, only the previous cloudinstance-sig was using it to 
build the centos 7 vagrant images.
It all stopped because vagrant images for 8/8-stream are built on the 
dedicated distro builders, and nobody maintaining/building the centos 7 
vagrant images.

There is even one bare-metal x86_64 node that is in the specific channel 
for such images builds : https://cbs.centos.org/koji/hostinfo?hostID=9 
(see the image, livecd, livemedia channels and corresponding tasks)

So if that's something you want to test, we can enable that for your SIG 
and then try to resurrect the image task (worth knowing that since all 
cbs environment was reinstalled from centos 7 to 8-stream, no image 
build was ever tested, so maybe a good time to do so)
