But these images have to come from somewhere, too. Their build process
still needs to solve the bootstrap issue.
For our purposes, it solves the problem. The main issue for us is that
since Koji does not support generating the bootstrap itself (this is
being passed to Mock), you cannot control the content going into
bootstrap creation. Copr has this issue too. But we don't need to
solve that problem to solve Miro's issue.
