*shrugs* it's what I saw available for download from

Apparently it's a gziped tar with a single file inside:
This .raw file is a disk image.

  - The .gz is 581M
  - The .tar is 8.1G
  - The .raw is 8.0G (8388608 K)

Before I make a PR here, am I going about running a centos container
with machinectl the best way here?
How are other people doing this?
