[CentOS-devel] ostree as a delivery model

You would use deploy to create an individual repository (mini spin) for each
server. At that point, content would be frozen. When you wanted to update
the repository for that server, you would run deploy again to integrate,
test and release new packages.

Does the deploy tool make reproducible copies?   And if so, does it
require a frozen copy of a repository or the specific packages to do it?
That is, if you have 6 different types of servers that are updated on
different schedules,  would you have to maintain 6 different repository
mirrors, each frozen at the time each instance was tested and kept for as
long as you might want to reproduce that tested system?

Or does this even do updates at all?
