contribution guidelines in there. This way, Github will show it as a link
in all pull requests. Perhaps you could create a pull request that would
add this file and we could discuss the guidelines there?
Sounds good. Let us discuss with others and close this in the
Please do. My timezone combined with my personal duties makes it almost
impossible to attend the cloud WG meetings.

fedora-dockerfiles package is built for fedora repos and for epel.
So could you instead write "... break the fedora-dockerfiles package that
is built in Fedora from this repo ..." or something similar to make this

Yes. I have corrected this.

An image which comes to f22 branch should be tested against fedora 22
Yes, but what does that *mean*? What does testing image against a Fedora
release mean? How can people do it? How is testing image against e.g. F22
different than testing it against e.g. F23?

CI, I am not really sure.
So let's say we have an old(ish) Dockerfile in the repo and readme says it
was tested on Docker 1.2. What does this information bring us except
showing that noone touched the readme since then?
I do agree that having CI would be awesome, but since it looks that the
repo may be moved to dist-git and split (as discussed at ), I find it
hard to convince myself to invest lots of time in this.

Building instructions are pretty much the same for all the
images and I
don't think it's necessary to have them in all READMEs. Let's just have
one instruction in the top level README file like "you can build any of
the images as 'docker build --rm -t fedora/<directory-in-this-repo>
This sounds good. I will go through some of the Dockerfiles and will
make the suggested changes if I don't see any anomaly.
