For people with RaspberryPI2/Cubietruck/Bananapi boards, we'd like you
to test the following images :

Please note that those are minimal, and obviously pointing to empty
yum repositories (nothing released yet), but testing-base and
testing-extras (pointing to buildlogs.centos.org) can be used.

Be aware that the first goal is just to validate that images are
working as expected, so packages in the testing-base repo are kept to
almost minimal ! (more to come later after validation, etc)

Selinux notes : selinux is disabled in the rpi2 image (no support -
yet- in the specific kernel for that). It's actually in permissive
mode (due to the way images were generated) in the cubietruck/bananapi
images but can be put in enforcing mode with a relabel of the
filesystem (takes ~5 minutes on my cubietruck )

There is the rootfs-resize-2.0-5.el7.noarch pkg that has been added,
so follow the instructions in /root/README if you want to
automatically resize/expand / to maximum

We'd like to inject some helper scripts for that before release time
(all those images are based on 7.1511 packages)

The other important remark is that it's called "userland" as packages
for RootFS are indeed the ones used in CentOS 7.1511, but kernel are
different (4.2.3 for cubietruck/bananapi and 4.1.11 for rpi2)

All comments/feedback are welcome !

Happy testing !
