I'm looking to write some articles for Fedora Magazine.
I basically want to discuss how we can build different types of Fedora
images using Imagefactory. For example, docker images, qcow2 images, etc.
I have some Github gists that I wrote a while back, which you can find
below (I promise they're not very long!).
Essentially, I want to encourage Fedora users to learn more about images
in general, and how to build their own images with Imagefactory (since
Koji and other tools are built on Imagefactory).
I also haven't seen any Imagefactory tutorials which do the same things
that I'm doing, not even in the Imagefactory docs.
So, I'm looking at writing a series of articles... maybe Part 1, Part 2,
and Part 3.
Part 1 - Why images? Why containers? Which image type is most suitable
for your needs (qcow2, qed, docker, vdi, vps, vmdk, etc.)?
Part 2 - Building Docker images
Part 3 - Building qcow2 images
I think this idea would be a magazine article as opposed to a Fedora
Community Blog article , so please let me know what you think :)
Hey Courtney! Thanks for taking the time for writing these up and
putting them on our radar.
At the weekly Magazine editorial board meeting tonight, we reviewed the
content you had so far and thought it would all be excellent for the
Magazine (in fact, a lot of us were interested in learning more about
the topic too)!
Having this lined up as a three-part series to go out weekly would work
well for our publishing schedule. If you could work on taking the
content you have so far and creating three separate articles in the
Fedora Magazine WordPress interface, this would be helpful for us and we
can work on getting them ready to publish.
If you have any questions, let us know and we can lend a hand. Thanks
again for thinking of the Magazine for this series. :)
