[CentOS-devel] Hosting non-RPM content for SIGs (Atomic in this case)

One thing to note here is the traditional model is:

Lorax(rpms) -> boot.iso
ImageFactory(boot.iso, kickstart, rpms) -> cloud image

With Atomic image composes there is an intermediate step:

Lorax(rpms) -> boot.iso
rpm-ostree(rpms, treefile) -> ostreerepo
ImageFactory(boot.iso, kickstart, ostreerepo) -> cloud image

The model is the ostreerepo can be consumed by clients in the same
way that RPMs can, but it means there's another step.
