Description (last modified by asn)

Seems like people are interested in docker images of Tor relays, or onion services (or even bridgedb). We should consider providing docker images for the people who want to use them.

Here is a recent attempt by Alessandro Fiori:
https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-dev/2019-March/013756.html

and there have been previous attempts as well here:
https://blog.jessfraz.com/post/running-a-tor-relay-with-docker/ (tor relay)

Also see this page for an organized version of infrastructure related projects:
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/community/relay_infrastructure

https://0day.work/dockerized-tor-onion-services-with-vanity-v3-tor-addresses/ (onion services)

We should figure out how to make these unofficial attempt useful to other people by legitimizing them and offering them to people in a useful way.

Trac isn't a good tool for working out what we should do, or who should do a task.
Please send an email to the tor-dev list instead.

We now have an official Docker image for obfs4 bridges, which may be useful for other services:
