I'm not sure what exactly the question is. This operation is very much similar
to how you would do this on a non-Atomic system today.

This is local package installation from a file? `rpm-ostree install /path/to/file.rpm`
work. Am I missing something?
- download rpms to local directory
- run createrepo
- serve that directory over http(s)
- add yum repo file into /etc/yum.repos.d/
Now you can rpm-ostree install 'pkg' and it will look at all enabled repos.

no plans other than some discussion in an upstream issue:

. Currently Fedora only accepts /lib/firmware Which of course is read only on atomic
I'm not really sure why /usr/local/lib/firmware isn't used by Fedora.
Maybe we can have someone from the kernel team comment. Added cc to
Laura Abbott to see if she knows why.
