A few months ago in a random post-PyConAU fit of hackery, I got disk-image-create in TripleO's diskimage-builder project running on openSUSE 12.3, i.e. you can now run disk-image-create on an openSUSE system, and have it create, say, an Ubuntu system image. Time to take the next step, and make it capable of building openSUSE images ;-)
