I was wondering if there might be a method for pushing updates to
Fedora IoT devices as opposed to pulling them from some central update
server (or mirror)? In reading through some of the libostree and
Fedora IoT docs, it is clear that pulling updates from some update
server is the current design for Fedora IoT.
I think it would be OK (probably required) to take additional disk
space to support this update push arrangement, if it is possible (some
local ostree mirror?).
You could probably put updates in a container and push the container
out and then update from the container, whether bound mounting it or
running a web service on the container.
