Dennis moved the kickstart, but there was no real discussion about process.
I think, actually, we need to develop our own processes here. And we can
talk with rel-eng about how that interacts with the spins process.

Sounds awesome. I guess the best way is to find the lightest process we can
to get the kickstart into the spins repo and added to the list of
automatically built images.

Yeah, a rel-eng ticket is probably best. There is a cron script which kicks
it off. Currently, it's a "create appliance" task. When we get the Koji 1.9
release and the ability to use its new functionality, we'll want to port it
(both the cron tasks and the kludges in the kickstart) to use the
anaconda/oz/imagecreator-based koji tasks. Hopefully RSN.
