Heh, it seems that my career as Fedora-Dockerfiles comaintainer may be rather short :)
I think having a web frontend with pull requests for the new dist-git is an awesome idea.
I'm +0.9 for pagure. The advantage is that it will be completely under Fedora control,
the small downside is that potential contributors from outside Fedora will have to create
Fedora account, which might scare some people off.
From what I understand is that pagure uses OAuth and at the moment the
only OAuth plugin in use is for FAS, we might be able to request to
enable some short list of federated logins if:
1) that is in fact possible
2) the authors of pagure are open to it
3) the Fedora Infrastructure team is OK with it

So IIUC, the standard way to get dockerfiles from dist-git would be "fedpkg clone
mariadb-docker" or similar. Perhaps we could provide a wrapper that anyone, even
without Fedora account, like "fedora-get-dockerfile --list" or
"fedora-get-dockerfile mariadb" (this would invoke "fedpkg clone
Ultimately people could just git clone from the git repo in pagure.
The only real thing that makes DistGit "special" is the branch layout,
relationship, and some git hooks. Otherwise it's still just git and we
can aggregate that information any way we choose. If there's
ultimately a desire for a web hub, it's possible we could get
something together similar to Fedora Packages

So I think that kubernetes/Nulecule examples should be standalone, since most often
they'll reference multiple images. What I mean is that they would be a good fit for
the current fedora-dockerfiles repo, but if we split the repo into multiple dist-git
repos, they won't fit in any one of these.
I'm not sure that I follow the motivation behind keeping them
standalone, could you elaborate why? Also, when you say "reference
multiple images" so you mean as a Nulecule spec or $other/$similar?

Yeah, scaling is a valid point. I think splitting into multiple repos is a good way to go
assuming we address the concerns that Scott has raised.
I think the main concern here (unless I"ve misunderstood) is
visibility and collaboration which I think we can solve. I like the
idea of the different Dockerfiles being separate similar to packages
in DistGit purely because that allows people with expertise in certain
areas to participate in the areas they care about and avoid all the
other line noise of a shared repository.
