Story points-
Velocity based estimate-


Some users need to do small changes during discovery or implement workarounds for non-existing features (configure network bond). While we do support ZIP extensions, these require network connections and not everything can be workarounded.

We can implement base64-encoded (perhaps gzipped) shell scripts that would be executed during system boot, so users could easily put shell commands to execute before or during discovery. Two scripts could be accepted - before and after network initialization. These could be simple systemd service units decoding and executing shell scripts.
