Thanks for the input Pau. I looked the code and talked yesterday with
guido. We will be doing some tests so we can understand better qmpfw
and how to use it from the chef.

I dont see crearly if using qmpfw as is directly from the web
interface is the way to go, because, like ImageBuilder, there are
multiple points of failure and it seems that a developer eye in the
process is needed. What do you think?
