This brings up an idea: it would really really help with user testing if
we could build test versions like this one (maybe from PRs) into
containers and make them available with a tag.
It's pretty trivial for me, or other users, to install an alternate
version of Cockpit via container. Running npm compile (even inside a
container) is kind of a pain.
I'll give building this one as a cockpit/ws container a shot.
Yeah, that would be cool.
Let us know (here on the list) when you do end up building such a
container (I imagine with systemd, NetworkManager, and friends inside it).
If it's not too hacky, we could have our bots do this automatically for
each Cockpit pull request.
