There are some folks working on revisor working on this. As well as some
interns working for someone at red hat. Jack knows about it, too. The
gist of how it will be is:

- web interface lets a user specify what they want in their distro.
- this information if submitted to a database or some other backend
- another set of machines build these distros/isos as they work through
the others in the queue.
- the backends update the database to tell the user where their isos are
available
- the user comes back to the web interface and is told where to go to
collect their isos.

that's the gist of it, really.
