Automated AMI test and release

Summary

We will test the AMI image we build on one single region using the same tests used in Vagrant/local Autocloud testing, and if the tests pass, then only the AMI will be uploaded to all the regions and released.

Detailed Description

Currenly fedming tool creates and uploads the AMI images to AWS, in all the regions. It only tests the output /usr/bin/true command to determine if an image is right or not.

The proposed change will split the process in the two parts. fedimg will first upload the image to only one region and emit a fedmsg message. Autocloud listening to these message will start testing the image using the same tests it uses for Vagrant/Atomic qcow2. Autocloud will upload the test details to ResultsDB. Fedimg will listen to ResultsDB fedmsg messages for the results of the test and if all the tests passes then then fedimg would copy the images to other regions as well.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora AMI images will get the same level of testing like rest of the Atomic/Cloud images. Currently, qcow2 images for OpenStack are tested automatically, and while the same bits go to EC2, we have to validate the EC2 images manually (or trust that everything is close enough, which is not a good assumption). The automation will bring us to the same level of testing for AMIs as the rest of the images already get.
