Subject Re: Docker?

This would be a great thing to try at the CCC hackathon.  Docker poses
some interesting challenges and to do a useful integration is going to
take some careful design.  There's two things to consider.  First,
docker's #1 feature in my mind is that it is a paradigm shift.  You
interact with docker in a different way than you would EC2.  If you
attempt to make docker just another hypervisor, it just starts looking
like LXC and then has very little benefit over LXC integration.  You
need to determine how to integrate docker while still keeping its
features (like Dockerfile).

Second, docker is very limited in the networking area.  Docker as it
currently stand manages all of networking aspect which includes
assigning its own IP, random port mappings, etc.

I have a lot of ideas about this and I'd love to chat with some people
at CCC about it.  We could probably get it working at CCC I'll
probably come prepared with stuff.
