Proposal : Use OSBS to build the fedora container base image

Hi all,

I would like to get feedbacks on the following proposal. Use OSBS to
build the fedora container base image, indeed OSBS has the capability
to build a base container image using a kickstart file.
To do this OSBS needs a Dockerfile, a kickstart file and an
image-build.conf file stored in dist-git, then OSBS will trigger an
ImageFactory task in Koji in order to build to base image and then it
will build the base container based on the artifacts built in Koji.

Here a the few advantages I see in moving forward with this proposal :

- Use of a single dist-git repo for the base image, allowing use of fedora-ci.
- Using OSBS will allow us to make use of bodhi updates to release
new versions of the image
- OSBS deals with multi-arches (we currently use a custom script in
releng to build manifest list)
- Does not requires releng to run a script to release the images

Before I start looking at the implementation details, I would
appreciate feedbacks.

Thanks
Clément

Is anyone actively maintaining ImageFactory? Because it's still Python

less supporting more images easily...
