Pungi is mostly meant to run for the release it exists on.  So if you
wanted to compose F7 releases, you need to run the F7 pungi on F7.  This
is due to a number of reasons, mostly the APIs of the tools it uses as
well as the kernel version that will be booted, etc...

F7's pungi was really a first attempt and I don't think it was that
good.  Rawhide's pungi is far better, but in some of the problems I
discovered along the way we've fixed in other pieces of software like
yum and anaconda.
