We're wrapping up the first phase of the Fedora Docker Layered Image
Build Service and the time has come to start thinking about what we as a
Project need to do to formalize what it means to be shipping Docker Layered
Images once we are capable of building and distributing them.
These are effectively going to compliment their RPM counterpart at least
in the beginning since we as a Project have never shipped any build artifact
other than RPMs as a part of the distribution before. We can grow organically
from there if we want to extend beyond the initial offering for Docker
Layered Images but I thought following RPM as a guide in the beginning was a
reasonable goal to achieve. Some areas that seemed pertinant right off the
bat are below, for each of them I have alread created a Draft document that
I would appreciate feedback on.
Docker Layered Image "packaging" Guidelines 
Package Review Process with a Docker Containers section 
Docker Layered Images Naming Guildelines 
The Fedora Cloud SIG has done a first-pass review of these (thanks Cloud
SIG!) so hopefully there's a certainly level of sanity to them but I'm
absolutely open to new ideas and extending the content with more coverage.
Another point to note is that we need to determine how this should be handled
in BZ components for bug reporting as well as for filing review requests.
Something else what was brought up when I originally submitted these ideas to
FESCo (aside from the fact that this should go to devel list first) was
that it is probably a good idea to establish a Container-centric Guidelines
Committee much in the way there is a Fedora Packaging Committee (which focuses
on RPMs). My question to everyone on that topic is, would there be enough
interest to establish such a committee?
As a side note and just a matter of opinion but I think the idea of forming
a Committee to help shepherd these new types of deliverables through Fedora
will help to enable aspects of Fedora Modularization which ultimately will
be good for the whole of the Fedora Project.
I look forward to questions and feedback.
