Your instance provisioning appears to be getting stuck at:

DEBUG [2013-04-02 02:08:19,256] Running command: yum -y makecache

This normally means the instance cannot access the internet to retrieve
repository information from the Fedora repos.

Since you have SSH access, try doing curl/wget to an internet address, e.g:

wget http://fedoraproject.org

If this doesn't work then you have a networking problem which needs to be
resolved before the stack launch will work.
