Subject Re: Interested in a Docker Image & Kubernetes Chart?
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2018 23:30:41 GMT
Hey Martin,

Feel free to add a link to our image and chart on the Archiva webpage.
Also, I threw together a v2-snapshot
<> branch/tag
of the image that is built using the most recent 2.2.4 snapshot. All of our
image tests pass using the current 2.2.4-SNAPSHOT build, as you would

Looking ahead, whenever you dust off this project to finish out 2.2.4 or
jump to version 3, I'd really like to see a docker image brought into the
project directly. Maintaining the image code separately from the project
isn't the greatest idea and since you already have a docker image for
testing, I'm sure it's something you've considered. If we're available the
next time there's some focus on this project, we'll see if we can help out
with that part. We've learned several lessons about running Archiva in a
container over the past few years and we'd love to make some small changes
in the source project to make life easier :-).

Oh, and it'd sure be nice to have an official Kubernetes helm chart once
there is an offical docker image. I'm confident that a lot more people
would use Archiva if was available there.
