triple release: ostree v2021.2, new{, -sys,-ext}

This is the first "triple release" of the core libostree:

Plus releases of the Rust bindings now merged into our organization:

And finally the first release of the new `ostree-ext` Rust crate (library):

The high level plan here is that we keep the existing C code as is but start adding new high level features 
in Rust.  I'd like to encourage project consumers to use Rust.  It's very early days for `ostree-ext` and a 
lot may change.  (See more on that below)

There's also likely going to be an `ostree-ext-cli` crate soon (it's in git), but it's just a really thin 
wrapper around the library.  I think we need to do some discussion around the future of the `/usr/bin/ostree` 

### ostree v2021.2

Release 2021.2

This release mainly adds new APIs for file writing, which we will
use in the new ostree-rs-ext project to improve imports from tarballs.
The other feature is that rofiles-fuse now handles xattrs (but - rofiles-fuse
should be considered deprecated, see ).
There's also some more introspection API tweaks, and some testing improvements.

Thanks to all contributors!

# ostree-ext v0.1.0:

This is the first release; the headlining feature is a new lossless tar import/export model and PoC work on 
OCI/Docker import/export on top of that.  There's a lot still to do here; in particular would need to be fixed to take this more seriously.  But 
it's suitable for experimentation.

There are also other convenience methods in ostree-rs, such as a new diff API, etc.
