Subject Re: Applied for official Docker image

Hey CouchDB devs,

I got some feedback for the official image proposal (see

I’d like to get some feedback from you for the following questions:

- Should we use ubuntu and the PPA instead of building from source? The ubuntu base image
is 60MB bigger than debian's.
- Building from git branches is not feasible in official images. Are there tags or pre-release
snapshots for 2.0?
- How does CouchDB handle signals? Currently couchdb doesn’t respond to SIGTERM. I’m not
sure if this is caused by my wrapper shell script.

Thanks for your input.

That means users will be able to "docker run couchdb" instead of "docker run klaemo/couchdb".
