Fedora Base Container Image Minimization

Summary

Reduction in size of the Fedora Base container image by dropping packages that are not needed for the core function of the base image. Those base functionalities will be gathered and defined in the process.

Owner

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 34
  • Last updated: 2020-10-30
  • FESCo issue: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>
  • Release notes tracker: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Feedback

Please provide your use and use cases in the Container-SIG issue or on the Fedora devel ML.

Benefit to Fedora

Reduced size of the base container image would make Fedora more friendly for cloud container use while keeping all the Fedora features. Reduction of the packages that are part of image will also help to find and fix implicit dependencies in containers and packages.

Scope

  • Proposal owners: Gather feedback, use cases for the Fedora base container image. Remove identified packages from the container image.
  • Other developers: Possibly fix/update their dependency requirements in packages and container.
  • Release engineering: TBD #Releng issue number (a check of an impact with Release Engineering is needed)
  • Policies and guidelines: TBD, but most probably not needed.
  • Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)
  • Alignment with Objectives:

Upgrade/compatibility impact

There should be no impact, breakage.

How To Test
