I just did a simple test to create a guest via Oz on Fedora 20 and it
just works. Here's my invocation details:

TDL file:

  $ cat f20.tdl
      <install type='url'>
    <description>Fedora 20</description>

Invoke `oz-install`:

    $ oz-install -d 4 f20.tdl 2>&1 | tee f20.log

Once the install is done, define the libvirt XML for the guest and start

    $ virsh define f20-jeos
    $ virsh start f20-jeos --console

"It's a wiki, be bold" :-). You can trivially make docs once you 
login with your OpenID or other mechanisms listed on RDO wiki.
