This release fixes a longstanding issue where `rpm-ostree upgrade`
would only check for updates on the rpm-md repo side if the
base tree changed.  Now we do check for layered package updates.
Issue: https://github.com/projectatomic/rpm-ostree/issues/391

In cases where PolicyKit is enabled, rpm-ostree now
automatically invokes an agent on demand, and supports
the CLI being invoked as non-root.  This is a big
change to the user experience for desktop systems, and
on the server side, also helps to e.g. define a policy that allows a system
management agent to initiate upgrades, but not install
packages for example.

rpm-ostree learned about RPM file triggers; this is necessary
for more and more packages in Fedora to work.

Thread: http://lists.rpm.org/pipermail/rpm-ecosystem/2017-July/000481.html

Another minor but welcome addition is that rpm-ostree now
outputs command descriptions in its -h/--help output.

There were also many fixes brought by a Coverity scan of
the codebase. No major issues were uncovered.

rpm-ostree learned about the new `ostree.endoflife` metadata
key, which displays an informative message when an OS stream (branch)
reaches end-of-life.  This will likely be used for Fedora
Atomic Host.
