So there's two things: we haven't formalized any sort of governance for
Project Atomic, but we do have governance for Fedora and CentOS that
dictate package selection somewhat.

We have the host definition that the projects can use to sync with us
(being "Project Atomic" in this case) but it's not mandatory. But some
things are dictated by policy in Fedora, for example, too.

We should probably discuss, soon, how we want to handle managing the
host definition though.
