Hi all:

This there any interest in the ability to install rpms with a
customization stick? I have a POC patch that does that with just a small
patch to dracut's 30olpc-customization routine[1]. On a side note I
noticed that the use of unzip suffers the same issue as os-builder does
when it comes to registering the activities' mimetype. Think the best
way around this is the same fix as I proposed here[2]. If we have to
chroot into the image for the rpms, think the activities should be
handled the same way. 

Feedback very much welcome,
