Docker Appliance as Linux Service RPM

Docker provides a convenient way to package entire applications into runnable containers. OTOH in the data center we use RPM packages to deliver software and configuration to our servers.

This wrapper build a bridge between Docker appliances and Linux services by packaging a Docker image as a Linux service into an RPM package.

The resulting Linux service can be simply used like any other Linux service, for example start the service with service schlomo start.
