the buildsystem does not have internet access, so cant pull from
external places, but beyond that its mostly a case of co-ordinating the
versions with what we are doing here, if we can get to a point where we
know for sure that EPEL wont update / change stuff till tests in centos
images pass, then we could just do a binary mirror for the content;
otherwise we're going to need to have the cloud-init code locally hosted
in git.centos.org
