The "canonical" way is to use cloud-init for setting up auth, and then ansible
for configuration. So the first step in your case would be to convert your
customizations to an ansible playbook, and then provisioning is essentially
boot + run playbook. You can then use git to version your playbook. :)

If you'd like to modify the host in fundamental ways (e.g. adding/removing a lot
of base packages), you could also compose your own OSTrees. The Fedora
Atomic Host images are based on the manifest files from here:


There's no native way right now to just "clone" an existing machine and
duplicate it across VMs. You might have luck with e.g. snapshotting and then
using something like `virt-sysprep`, though I haven't tried it myself with AH.
