OK that makes sense. This will be something that needs upgrading every 6
months like our proxies, but it is what it is.
I have also seen that countme is deployed from ansible directly from
git. I could do that also for mirrorlist cache generation code on RHEL 7
which would mean we do not need any other hosts. We could just run it
directly on mm-backend01 as it is right now and switch between the
existing Python based code and the new Rust based code just as we need
