LXD
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Name: LXD
Homepage: https://linuxcontainers.org/lxd/
Why should this be included in the repository? If we already offer similar software in our repository or third party, please provide information on what your proposed software does that our existing offerings don’t (differentiators): A useful alternative to Docker for those who wish to run full-system containers (as an alternative to virtual machines usually).
Is it Open Source (yes/no): Yes
Who and how many users do you anticipate will use this software?: I will, and presumably many of the existing users of the lxc package would be interested in using this over the snap LXD.

Event Timeline

I would note that I am already maintaining the lxc package and would be taking on maintaining this as well. I already have it built and well-tested locally and if approved would like the creation of the following repositories (for LXD and dependencies):

  • raft
  • dqlite
  • lxcfs
  • lxd
