What we normally do is to make all our configuration changes through puppet -
so e.g., with the above, we'd add buildbot-master and buildbot-slave to the
ostree module in puppet rather than doing 'yum install'. We don't have any sort
of verification procedure, but in general, we've had good luck when setting up
a new VM and moving a service there that the service is 98% working.

That's the idea - that stuff that isn't part of the system configuration in
is kept in a separate place. Note that /srv/ostree *is not backed up* as
If you feel that it's getting hard to recreate, please reconsider whether you
some parts of it under backup.

Our puppet setup at this point is restricted to root-level configuration, so it
be hard to use it for the details of ostree as long as its actively changing.
