Just a heads-up; with Fedora 29 the legacy networking setup was moved
into a separate, not-installed-by-default network-scripts package.
This has prompted us to finally move to managing interfaces on our
Fedora and CentOS CI hosts with NetworkManager (see [1])

Support for this is enabled with features added in glean 1.13.0 and
diskimage-builder 1.19.0.

The newly created Fedora 29 nodes [2] will have it enabled, and [3]
will switch CentOS nodes shortly.  This is tested by our nodepool jobs
which build images, upload them into devstack and boot them, and then
check the networking [4].

I don't really expect any problems, but be aware NetworkManager
packages will appear on the CentOS 7 and Fedora base images with these
