Containerizing distributions (Colin Walters, Red Hat) - This talk will look at how the rise of Docker and other container technologies have impacted the Fedora, CentOS, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux distributions from both a release engineering and developer/user perspective. We will look at several package system/container integration issues, such as:

- `docker build` reproducibility with packages, other systems like the OpenShift Build Service
- package systems requiring root privileges versus best practice of unprivileged containers
- uid/gid synchronization
- rpm versus the Docker overlayfs backend

In addition, we will look at technologies for minimal container hosts, such as (rpm-)OSTree, Snappy, the CoreOS updater and how they intersect with containers.
