Add more packages from @core
I have written a plugin that can use discovery image to install different linux flavors using imaged based installs instead of kickstart/preseed ([[https://github.com/deltaprojects/foreman_discovery_image_installer]]).
Currently I added a statically compiled parted use rpm to install other packages to the booted discovery image, which is kind of ugly.
Optimally there should be a working yum setup, so you can use yum to install additional packages or/and perhaps add following packages to the discovery image:
parted, mdadm, xfsprogs, e2fsprogs, bzip2, ssm.
This plugin is designed so that everyone can write their own partitioning script, so it's not unlikely that someone would perhaps want to see zfs or btrfs tools installed as well.

added PR https://github.com/theforeman/foreman-discovery-image/pull/86 which solves the needed packages.
didn't add ssm since it's a epel package and didn't know if that would work and currently not used by the image installer scripts yet.
But as I mentioned, would be nice if
yum install worked and perhaps with epel enabled as well.
