I messed up here I missed "Requires hosting a binary image on
from what I remembered it was providing tools
to create appliances. not us actually providing appliance images. since
appliances are specialised configured things its really hard to provide a
single appliance. I personally have no issue with hosting appliance
kickstart files. but i think we need to review hosting a binary appliance
In this case the "appliance" is a running system with the bare number of
packages. It is just delivered as a raw disk as opposed to an ISO.
Again, I will make sure to be online for the meeting so we can discuss.
