> You're telling now it's not an alternative. It should be removed from the guide, it's a huge change in the plans on how to deploy VZ7. For now, I was able to fire up a CentOS 6 host and then follow the guide for installing OpenVZ. With VZ7, I will need to be able to install from my own ISO image, this might cause problems with the hosters I use and I really need to evaluate if this is a good way to go. I really prefer OpenVZ container in favour of lxc and I'd like to stay with it, but I also need an easy way to fire up a new host system.
we really need to fire up  HN from automatic deployement tools, here we 
use cobbler + PXE to instanciate our servers.
We do have centos7 template ready to go , we just add few shell lines in 
a snippet of our  kickstart to transform those bare centos 7 system to VZ .
we don't want to maitained a new distribution in cobbler/kickstart ....
