Hi Clayton,

We were discussing Language Stacks announcement for Docker Hub on our 
last meeting and I'd like you to join our discussion as we find 
OpenShift useful source of information about developers.

We as Env&Stacks WG would like to provide reasonable Docker layered 
images  to Fedora users which they could use for development and 
deployment of their applications. OpenShift could probably provide some 
hints for this - which languages and stacks OpenShift developers use 
most and how do they use them?

You will be welcome to join our meeting at #fedora-meeting (Tue, 9am EDT).
