Hi everyone.

My name is Zac Dover and I work at Red Hat as a Senior Technical Writer. Matthew Miller brought to my attention the email included below and suggested that I might be able to contribute. Here is the email:

I have already written material on how to install Docker on Fedora, where to find Fedora images, how to run containers, how to write Dockerfiles properly (my name is the one on the Dockerfile manpage in RHEL7). I also have a number of handwritten notes that I would be glad to type up into a glossary.

Because this matter has only just come to my attention, and because the notes I have stored electronically are on a fileserver within the Red Hat VPN, and because I don't know who all the stakeholders are in this matter, please tell me how and in which format you would like to see my notes (if, indeed, you would like to see them).

I have subscribed to env-and-stacks, and I look forward to getting easy-to-read explanatory containerization procedures and concepts into the minds of our audience.

Please do not hesitate to contact me.
