ostree v2014.13

OSTree v2014.13 is tagged: https://git.gnome.org/browse/ostree/tag/?id=v2014.13

This release has an introduction of a new "bare-user" mode which is designed for some work Alex is doing on 
using OSTree as delivery vehicle for user apps, as opposed to the system mode.

You can "ostree init --repo=repo --mode=bare-user", do commits there.  Then using "ostree checkout -U" from 
that repo will use hardlinks.  A neat aspect of this though is that the repo still records system metadata - 
you can pull-local to/from the "bare" or "archive-z2".

The other major change is around handling of remotes.  There is a new API, which is flexible enough for what 
Anaconda needs ( https://lists.fedorahosted.org/pipermail/anaconda-patches/2014-December/015156.html ) to 
reduce the hacks there.  The command line is improved as well.
