Foreman Discovery oVirt-based imageLukas Zapletal has announced a new image based on oVirt Node which contains a far better range of drivers and firmware for systems, and is RPM-based. It works as a plugin to oVirt, so it extends the existing image building mechanism, which you can replicate and customize.
