"Official" Archlinux Docker image

I'll make it short.
Ubuntu and CoreOS have official images (tags ubuntu and coreos). Arch should have one too.

FROM arch:latest
FROM arch:20140801

I see this from the WIki if that's what you're talking about. I don't know if I would want to maintain it myself, but someone else might.

A latest image might be a bit fun tricky because of the rolling nature of Arch.

Claire is fine.
Problems? I have dysgraphia, so clear and concise please.

Re: "Official" Archlinux Docker image

Hi Claire,

yes, that's the docker in question.
A docker image is essentially

cat archive.tgz | docker import - archlinux:latest

but also

docker import http://example.com/exampleimage.tgz

http://docs.docker.com/reference/comman … li/#import

I could imagine a weekly automated build
a weekly cronjob that runs a shell script (pacstrap with modifications, if any (init gpg for automated updates, exempt kernel from updates?), `tar czpf  /path/to/public/latest.tgz ./`)
import image, push to docker repo.
perhaps also a archlinux:latest_minimal (or just minimal or latest) tag for a minimal image since you don't need the kernel for instance and other packages might also be left out since you don't need to boot, just an idea.
I don't know who to contact regarding being official an email or issue on github could solve that smile
I could do it myself but it wouldn't be official.

edit:
oh I see what you mean base/archlinux is there but it's not "official" and the build script is also there.
