If we're talking only about tripleo-ansible, we might "just" add the new
dependencies in the spec file in tripleo-ansible-distgit.
If we're talking more broadly, as said in the LP, a meta-package
(tripleo-dependencies for instance) might be a nice thing, since it
would allow to take care of:
- package pinning (staring at YOU, podman)
- package dependencies

As for a proper spec, it might be interesting for future reference. Not
really sure if it's really needed, but...
