CentOS Atomic Host: considering rpm-ostree jigdo ♲

Hi Jason (and anyone else interested in the CentOS community):

I am starting to socialize this option for rpm-ostree (and hence Atomic Host):

<a href="https://github.com/projectatomic/rpm-ostree/issues/1081" title="https://github.com/projectatomic/rpm-ostree/issues/1081">https://github.com/projectatomic/rpm-ostree/issues/1081</a>

See also my Fedora releng discussion proposal:

Any thoughts about whether this would help CentOS AH delivery?

I'm also interested in whether anyone who is doing "custom AH" builds
using CentOS would want to use this approach.

It sounds promising to me. I know there's been some pain around repo
mirroring. What do you need from us to advance this?

We should start thinking about if this would be a new rpm-md repo or if it
would show up in one of the existing ones. And whether that new rpm-md
repo would contain the "jigdo set" itself or whether it'd just reference
the existing ones.

I think my vote is this appears as a new rpm-md repo but for reliability
that repo also contains (hopefully hardlinks) to the jigdo set RPMs.

There's going to be some period of overlap where we do both, but given
the goal I am assuming we cease updates to the ostree repo at some point. That's going
to impact anyone who *is* e.g. mirroring it today, but I would be very surprised
if anyone doing that isn't already mirroring RPMs too.

So just questions like that - we don't have to have it all answered right now.
