Summary0015260: [RFE] Distinguished volume ids between different kinds of ISOs
DescriptionThe reasoning behind this request is to have more accurate data in osinfo-db that could be used, for instance, by GNOME Boxes and virt-manager.

Currently, as the "Everything", "DVD", "Minimal" and "Network" ISOs have exactly the same Volume id (CentOS 7 x86_64) we can't distinguish the ISOs the user have in order to help them to properly pick up whatever is better for their needs.

The way we have been currently working this around is by having the ISO's volume size (which are usually different) combined with their Volume id. This approach, however, won't work well in CentOS case as we're offering the "Rolling" ISOs to the users and their volume size will change on every new addition/removal.

I've also noticed that for the Live ISOs they volume id is already distinguished (CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveKDE-* vs CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveGNOME-*) thus the RFE to see whether doing the same for the other ISOs would be something appealing to CentOS.
