A containment policy for Docker
There's a long food chain betweem writing the first line of code and maintaining production systems. Docker is focused on packaging up finished code and moving it around in a more formatted, automated way. As long it sticks to the creation and management of containers, it's probably all right. If it ventures durectly into agile coding tools, frameworks, operating systems, it will collide with a number of powerful allies. Perhaps in the future: a new, more granular way to do patching and updates of applications in containers.

Other buys?
What else might Docker look to acquire, Charlie?
