Project Description

MicroOS and Jeos images don't have their man pages installed to save space. This means having to switch to a browser or a full system just to look things up.

The man pages can be extracted from the RPMs on the DVDs. The man program itself pulls in locale dependencies that bloat the container by >200MB. This project will use buildah to install just enough to run man.

Goal for this Hackweek

Tutorial on how to build smaller container images.
