Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-270) Official Docker Image support in ASF project
Date Mon, 26 Sep 2016 23:06:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-270?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15524446#comment-15524446

Marvin Humphrey commented on LEGAL-270:

All official Apache releases are in source form; Docker images can be built from our official
source releases, but are derived distributions analogous to, say, Debian packages.

This topic was discussed recently on infrastructure@apache ( https://s.apache.org/OKRb ) and
general@incubator ( https://s.apache.org/S6D3 ). Here's what I wrote on general@incubator:

The main Docker Hub at hub.docker.com is a public-facing downstream
distribution channel -- similar to Maven Central, PyPI, Debian package
management, etc.

It is appropriate to distribute official releases through downstream channels,
but inappropriate to distribute unreleased materials through them.  (That's
why having `latest` on hub.docker.com point to git `master` is problematic.)
See Apache's formal Release Policy and Release Distribution Policy documents:


There are an unbounded number of such downstream channels, and there is no way
we are going to formulate specific policies for all of them.  Instead, we
primarily rely on people respecting our trademarks: that "Apache Foo", when
obtained from one of these channels, is what the consumer expects.

We have an issue with the nascent Infra-supported offerings at https://hub.docker.com/r/apache/
-- it is confusing and inappropriate for the `latest` tag on hub.docker.com to point at Git
`master` for one of our projects, since `master` represents unreleased code. I have opened
INFRA-12659 to address the issue.

It can include whole zipped files which includes various foundational files(glibc, python,
and so on).
