Docker Container Image


This is Fedora running inside Docker. Currently, there are non-official images in the docker index, but we'd like them to really come out of release engineering.


Current status

Detailed Description

The public docker registry hosts many fedora images including an unprefixed (semi-official) image. However, this image doesn't have rel-eng approval which would be required for a fully official image.

The goal of this change is an unprefixed official image uploaded via Fedora rel-eng to Docker. Part of the change is to get rel-eng account/access in order to do the upload.

Benefit to Fedora

This will give docker/fedora users something trustworthy to build other stuff on. Will also give fedora an awesome presence on the docker index :)


Needs work in Koji to generate Docker base image reliably. There's conceptually two steps: first the tarball is generated, then it's imported. This change is still worthwhile even if the image isn't uploaded to the registry, as people could download it directly from Fedora and import it locally.

  • Proposal owners:

The proposal owner needs to build the image tarballs with the official kickstart scripts and make them available to docker's stackbrew repo, which is used by the Docker maintainers to build unprefixed images.

Release Engineering approval/intervention would be needed at some point (details still TBD)
