While we wait, I put together a wiki page so we can all list images. Feel free to add your own, add requests, +1 requests etc. https://github.com/dotcloud/docker/wiki/Public-docker-images

Hi all, Here’s a video going over the Postgres install we did with Ted at the last meetup. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2768314/docker%20demo%201%20postgres.mov A quick overview of what happens there: 1. Upload a base ubuntu quantal image 2. Run a container from the base image, generate locales, commit the changes to the image 3. Run a new container from the upgraded base image, install postgres, commit a new ‘pg’ image 4. Run a pg container, tweak the configuration, commit. 5. Run a new container, create a dummy database and table, commit. 6. One more throw-away container, run the init script to figure out the full…
