Subject Re: [DISCUSS] publishing docker image for podling
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2017 12:27:17 GMT
I'll point out that there was a discussion around docker and podlings back
over the summer, [1].

It appears that Greg is correct, it has not been presented to infra yet,
but the IPMC has moved forward on a proposal which seemed to be to allow
guacamole to publish as "apache/guacamole".  I see no reason that
"apache/singa" would be different.  I would prefer that over you guys
creating your own dockerhub account as well (note the cloudstack reference
in the email...).

I think that before the IPMC specifies a policy on docker hosting, the ASF
in general has to have a policy on docker hosting.  I can find no reference
to one.  If we find that there is something that needs to be tweaked from
the policy, then it would be listed within the constraints section.
