This is a tracking bug for Change: Enable bootupd for Fedora Silverblue & Kinoite
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/FedoraSilverblueBootupd

By design, ostree does not manage bootloader updates as they can not (yet) happen in a safe fashion. To solve this issue, bootupd (https://github.com/coreos/bootupd) was created. bootupd is a small socket activated program that takes care of updating the bootloader. It currently only supports EFI booted systems and rpm-ostree based systems. The updates are triggered by an administrator and are not (yet) automated for safety reasons. This change is about enabling bootupd integration in Fedora Silverblue and Fedora Kinoite to make bootloader updates easier. bootupd is already used in Fedora CoreOS.
