Hints on how to create a Debian image for Docker.

See http://sfxpt.wordpress.com/2013/11/17/debianubuntu-package-developing-with-docker-continued/ for original reference.

The following is work in progress WITHOUT ANY WARANTY

Note that due to bug #740855 /usr/share/docker.io/contrib/mkimage-debootstrap.sh needs to be patched at the moment.

You may create an image with :

.../mkimage-debootstrap.sh $USER/debian sid

The image may then be used with :

sudo docker.io run -i $USER/debian:sid echo "hello world"
