Fedora Atomic and Docker Host Image [was Re: Docker Host Image: Requirements?]

Just noticed that removing Python would obviously also mean no
heat-cfntools. Do we want to accept that (if we go with remove-python
at all)?

Starting to wonder a bit how users are supposed to use Docker. What
other mechanisms do we have to actually run a container with Docker
once the image is deployed?

Probably this, will try a workaround later. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that's not a good way to go. Not sure if there's any
much better. We'll see once I had time to play around some more.

Great, looking forward to that.
