Description Micah Abbott 2016-02-08 14:08:47 EST
Description of problem:

The current 'rhel-tools' container is the preferred way of accessing man pages for the RHEL Atomic Host.  Unfortunately, it weighs in at 1.159 GB, which is quite large if you just need access to man pages.

We could still provide the 'rhel-tools' container with the man pages (or perhaps link containers).
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2016-02-08 14:13:54 EST
Could we start to put the RHEL-tools container into a layered mode, where we could make the man pages as lower layer.  Rather then building a totally separate container image.
Comment 2 Micah Abbott 2016-02-08 14:18:28 EST
Sounds like a good approach; it also means we don't have to track separate deliverables.
Comment 4 Eliska Slobodova 2016-04-05 03:40:55 EDT
Hi guys, OSBS squashes images, so I believe "layered mode" wouldn't work here.
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2016-10-18 12:57:30 EDT
Any one examined why the RHEL tools container is so HUGE?
