My idea was to "guess" base image automatically from the
os-version(-arch) selected by user in COPR - so if the copr build is
for fedora-20-x86_64, we can say yes, it's 64bit, and use fedora:20 as
If we really want to build images, it would make sense to serve them in
private registry. On the other hand, I've changed my mind since I sent
this proposal - I am not sure if Fedora infrastructure can/will handle
building and storing possibly hundreds or thousands of images. I'd like
to start with a feature that will prepare and let you download a
Dockerfile which you can then modify locally and build your image.
I need to talk about this with Mirek and people from Fedora
