Adds OpenShift Origin and developer mode for Fedora Atomic Host to drive containerized application development and deployment

The Fedora Project, a Red Hat, Inc., sponsored and community-driven open source collaboration, announced the general availability of Fedora 24, the first 2016 release of the fully-open Fedora operating system.
