Add the container and flatpak releases if they weren’t already added to bodhi

Update vars

As in this Ansible Pull request create changes for the 38 release ==== Run the playbooks

$ rbac-playbook openshift-apps/greenwave.yml
$ rbac-playbook openshift-apps/bodhi.yml
$ rbac-playbook groups/bodhi-backend.yml
$ rbac-playbook groups/releng-compose.yml
$ rbac-playbook manual/autosign.yml

Greenwave runs in OpenShift (as implied by the playbook paths), and so the change will not be live right away when the playbook finishes. You can monitor to wait for the new policy to appear (it should take a few minutes).

Consider Before Running

No considerations at this time. The docs git repository is simply a static html hosting space and we can just re-render the docs and push to it again if necessary.
