Hi guys,

During Hackweek Flavio got Docker (http://www.docker.io)
working on openSUSE
(http://flavio.castelli.name/2013/04/12/docker-and-opensuse/)

As it requires aufs3, right now the installation pulls a patched kernel
from miska:
https://build.opensuse.org/project/show?project=home%3A-miska-%3Aaufs

Is there any position in the kernel team with respect to having aufs3 in
the kernel itself? or, the required patches and build aufs3 as a
separate package? (http://aufs.sourceforge.net/)

On the other hand, for some reasons distros don't seem to like aufs:

(Please CC me, I am not subscribed).

What are the advantages to using aufs vs overlayfs, which is already in
our kernel and developed by SUSE engineer Miklos Szeredi?
