This looks good to me and I'm keen to assist.

As a starting point, I've put up a snapshot of the non-RPM metadata that
is being used to generate the upstream Atomic content.  It differs
substantially from the current CentOS Atomic SIG content and will need
at least some modification to be workable.

It's currently sitting in this directory and branch of my fork of the
Atomic SIG repo:


Prior to the full RPM source drop being available, I'd like to at least
try some initial smoke test tree composes using the SIG content in CBS.
 I will attempt to start on this early next week.

I'd also be interested in getting plugged in on the CI/CD infrastructure
side of things.
