IC-OS Verification

To build and verify the IC-OS disk image, run:

# From
# This process requires Mac/Linux/WSL2, Git and Podman on your machine.
git clone
cd ic
git fetch origin
git checkout 1612a202d030faa496e1694eed98be4179fca856
if ./gitlab-ci/container/ -i ; then
    wget -c
    shasum -a 256 artifacts/icos/update-img.tar.gz update-img.tar.gz
    echo "IC-OS build failed. Verification unsuccessful." >&2

The two SHA256 sums printed above from a) the downloaded CDN image and b) the locally built image,
must be identical, and must match the SHA256 from the payload of the NNS proposal.
