Anaconda is what installs:


I did the patches against an older branch of Anaconda, I'm working on 
porting them to rawhide.

However on the "compose server" side, the trees are not "installs".  
It's quite close to just "rpm2cpio"ing all of the RPMs into an unpacked 
root, running the %post, and committing that.

A key difference though is that ostree demands that the trees can be 
updated without %post on the client.  This lack of %post requires some 
design changes in the OS content.  See for example:
