There are a few options.  The most flexible though for both Fedora and
CentOS I think will be to make use of the mirrorlist= code that's about
to land: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=729585

That way all the flexibility that mirrorlists provide yum also can be
used for OSTree - closest mirrors, etc.

In the short term, adding a config file in e.g.
/etc/ostree/remotes.d/centos-atomic.conf in a -release RPM to a
hardcoded URL and ensuring the default origin file to point there would
likely work.

Clients can easily change the tree and location.

So OSTree has this concept of an "origin" for the current tree, located
in the .origin file.  The autobuilder script currently hardcodes an
origin of osname:target - so whatever you use as osname is assumed to be
the same as the remote name.

For the original Fedora prototypes, I was just hardcoding the URL, but
as soon as we have the mirroring sorted, I was planning to look at this
myself too.

The biggest gap actually I see is the installer path - it's kind of
weird how it uses a remote name of "installmedia".  We may need further
Anaconda/pykickstart patches for this to be saner - some way to tell
Anaconda to pull from the physical media during the install, but still
set up ostree to pull from another origin post-install.
