[CentOS-devel] ostree as a delivery model

As a side note - the deploy tool (deployproject.org) can be used to pull
together a set of packages (essentially a lightweight spin), test install
and update, and deploy to one or more systems using standard tools
(anaconda, yum). It can also be used to script ostree creation (or vm or ISO
image creation, or ...) starting from the mini spin.

Wouldn't it be nicer to just make the standard package manager able to
do updates repeatably?  That is, so you could build or update one
system, test it, then tell the package manager to install or update
the same set of packages at the tested versions on one or more other
systems?  Without needing additional infrastructure or tooling...
