Subject Re: Docker images migrated to apache/couchdb
Date Wed, 20 Sep 2017 08:27:56 GMT
In short, I am encouraging someone else to maintain a master image
that is not under the apache/couchdb or couchdb namespace @ Docker
Hub. I already have enough plates that I'm keeping spinning right
now, I'm not going to volunteer to do this as well.

Adapting this file should be trivial for whomever wants to do so:

You can add `-n 1` to the `dev/run` command to ensure only a single
node is started up.

We were explicitly instructed *not* to publish a master version by
ASF staff when given access to the apache/couchdb name space. I
don't know what more I can say here without Infra threatening
to take away the apache/couchdb namespace from us.

We were also told that the "official" namespace that Docker
provides (just 'couchdb' which is being updated to the new
apache/couchdb location) can only use official releases from
upstream, see:

"...while bleeding edge betas/RCs/etc that have a unique git
hash reference can be supported, building from master should be
done in a non-official image."

Having a master version available does not seem to break those policies (advertising outside
the development community seems purposefully vague), and if it did then those policies should
be fixed. A master version of CouchDB available for testing with PouchDB would be hugely beneficial,
I imagine for other projects that want to integrate with CouchDB would benefit too

Hello everyone, 

The Docker images that used to live at klaemo/couchdb have 
now been semi-officially replaced by ones at apache/couchdb. 

Tags are present for 1.6.1, 1.6.1-couchperuser, 2.1.0, and 
latest (which is the same as 2.1.0). The 2.1.0 image can be 
used both as a single node, and in a cluster. 

ASF policy prevents us from publishing a "master" version, 
as notated here: 

Sorry for the delay in getting these out the door. 

The next step is to deprecate the klaemo/couchdb image, and 
to have the "official" couchdb image replaced with a pointer 
to the apache/couchdb image.
