Description Colin Walters 2015-03-17 21:38:48 UTC
rpm-ostree (just like any image system, including Docker and cloud images) is subject to uid/gid drift.  In both of the latter, it's possible to use "yum update", which works as well as it always has.

However, for rpm-ostree, they must be allocated consistently on the server side.

is a commit for master and f22 that must now be backported to f21, because the most recent update changed uids for important things like "sshkeys".
