Excellent news!

We only use that scripts included in the anaconda-runtime stack - I'm
away to Fosdem this weekend ( are you guys around ? ) back in town on
Monday, would love to help you guys make this transition.

Essentially, the repo included on disk/in-media/in-mirror is a snapshot
in time from the buildsys, with a bunch of tests run against it and an
install image built around it. Depending on what you are trying to do
and what the most desirable goal might be, I'll be happy to help build a
process for that.
