Description Marek Polacek 2016-08-01 14:18:42 UTC
Currently, in the devtoolset metapackage we ship several dockerfiles.  These include:
* devtoolset-4
* devtoolset-4-dyninst
* devtoolset-4-elfutils
* devtoolset-4-oprofile
* devtoolset-4-systemtap
* devtoolset-4-toolchain
* devtoolset-4-valgrind
These dockerfiles reside in rhscl-dockerfiles repository, and are generated using scripts that are kept in another repository, rhscl2dockerfile.

We also ship built docker images.  These are:
* devtoolset-4-toolchain-docker
* devtoolset-4-perftools-docker
They're built from dockerfiles kept in a different repository: <>.

So we keep two sets of dockerfiles.  The first set, kept in rhscl-dockerfiles, is outdated, and I wonder how well (if at all) they are tested.  In general, the rhscl-dockerfiles repository seems to be unmaintained these days.  On the flip side, the dockerfiles for docker images are up to date and we regularly build images from them.  I'm of the mind that we should in the near future work on consolidating these dockerfiles.  What I suggest is to:
- drop elfutils, dyninst, valgrind, oprofile, systemtap dockerfiles from the meta package,
- only ship toolchain/perftools dockerfiles coming from the maintained repo,
- for devtoolset-4-*-docker images change nothing.

Generally, the docker images contain dockerfiles, but not the other needed source files.  As Honza Horak pointed out to me, we don't have a similar concept to SRPMs in the RPM world.  We should probably work on that, too, though that seems more like a long-term problem.

I'd like to get the green light for my proposed approach.

Verified for build devtoolset-6-dockerfiles-6.0-6.el7 - only toolchain/perftools Dockerfiles are provided, no RHEL6 variant.
