Since the emergence of the modern containers idea, Docker has been the go-to technology to many users, not just to run and manage containers, but also to build images, share them, and manage the entire lifecycle of container instances. Docker has become an important tool in the daily work of developers, sysadmins and DevOps engineers. Many of those users have been using third-party Docker packages instead of using the packages we provide in Debian. Analyzing this situation and understanding where we can improve is key to keep Debian relevant for them.

We, as the Debian community, need to always try to provide what our users are in need. Are we providing everything needed by our users considering the Docker ecosystem? Is there a way to improve the Docker user experience? In this talk, we are going to present the work that has been done so far, some problems, and discuss what we could do to keep improving this ecosystem in Debian.
