It's a layered approach. rpm-ostree does let you unlock the base and
install and remove RPMs. You could also run the server side component
that turns RPMs into ostrees yourself (locally or in cloud) and have
however many trees you want, and establish your own rebase policy for
But if I've understood correctly, any changes to the base
discarded when you update the base image. right?
