Docker & Dokku
@jonrichter just pointed me to
Should we expect that Open App Ecosystem components will use Docker and possibly Dokku as recommended way to deploy it? I think we will take same direction with Portable Linked Profiles components...

@loomio - bug? Or missing feature?
And does @loomio work? (I'll look over in feature ideas for mentions in the discussion context...) It's in the roadmap.

Missing feature! We need to generalise the mentionable function. We'll do that after we get the Loomio 1.0 interface shipped.

So @robertguthrie - did the @loomio mention attract your attention, or are you just watching everything all the time?

@bobhaugen - Just watching things.
Don't expect Dokku to become a standard thing. The whole docker deployment landscape is changing so rapidly you can only expect it to change more, so any investment you make in this stuff carries a bit of risk. Dokku does not scale, at all. But it's great for small apps.
What I would expect to be standard is all these docker deployment things exposing the same interface - git push to deploy.. and that's all you care about.

@robertguthrie is spot on.
with regards to deployment, i think the way forward is:
- immutable app builds
- git push to deploy apps
- easy control of app plugins
Dokku is great because it does these things, so right now i use it heaps.
as my deployments grow i'll need to move to something that scales, so Dokku won't be enough. for that i've been loosely watching the landscape, and CoreOS seems to provide a great back-end and Panamax seems to provide a great front-end, but it's all speculative at this point.

@jonrichter mention didn't work somehow :(
