Hi, in the background I’ve slowly been working on
The idea here is that basically CoreOS becomes the base of Silverblue - and ideally IoT as well. More components besides rpm-ostree are shared, including Ignition and zincati (for IoT and maybe Silverblue).
There’s a whole lot of implications to this of course; some things get worse, others get much better. One of those things that IMO is much better is how much easier it is to do custom builds (both for testing fixes and truly custom forks) with https://github.com/coreos/coreos-assembler
which is opinionated tooling that works with
rpm-ostree and also knows how to build and test disk images (the most relevant of which is a Live ISO).
Just putting this out there now for more visibility and discussion. I am actually using this locally from local builds; I haven’t uploaded pre-built disk images online yet, though it wouldn’t be hard to do.
