Branch r/stx.7.0 can build ISO's, but container builds remain broken on 

stx-nova's issues started with spice-html5.  The first issue was 
spice-html5's github repo, forcing a move to gitlab's copy of the 
spice-html5.  The move to gitlab went smoothly for debian (master and 
r/stx.8.0), but is failing to clone from r/stx.7.0 centos.  It appears 
gitlab requires a newer version git.  Centos is using version 1.8.x. 
Debain is using a version 2.x.x.

We have a few options:

1) r/stx.7.0 needs to find a way to inject a newer version of git into 
the Loci CentOS container that stx-nova is based on.  A tricky thing to fix.

2) Move to a newer version of Centos across all Loci images, Prohibitive 

3) Discontinue container builds for r/stx.7.0

4) Selectively discontinue builds of stx-nova and any other image 
needing spice-html5 for r/stx.7.0
