Foreman as a Container Image Registry

The devs have had some discussions about how to communicate about their topics of interest and responsibility to the broader community. I suggested that discourse and email search would be a good medium. So it seems sensible that I should start!

My interest (and work responsibility at Red Hat) is in using Foreman, through the Katello plugin, as a container image registry for docker and skopeo images.

My open pull-requests (PRs) are around supporting “docker push” and “skopeo copy” directly against the server, as well as being able to mirror an external registry while maintaining the image names without change.

If this is an area of interest to your use of Foreman, let me know! My IRC highlight words include my nick, thomasmckay, or “registry”.

I’ll post some follow-ups here of demos of existing and future work.
