I don't have any opinion at all on the technical details of this, but
I do want to *not have to care*. There are a lot of folks here that
care about handling complex multi-service setups, or supporting
Windows and Mac OS X users, and that's important, but the user
experience of installing a *single* application on Fedora/RHEL/CentOS
appears to have been lost in the shuffle.

I think Deis got this aspect right with Helm, as a relatively simple
use case ("Install Redis") is front and centre on Helm's home page:

By contrast, I still don't know how to use Nulecule or AtomicApp to
*actually solve a development problem* (like installing a
containerised PostgreSQL rather than installing it directly on my host
workstation) despite following development since the original launch.
The Nulecule and Atomic App docs aren't much help either, as they
*describe the tool*, rather than *how to use* the tool:

* http://www.projectatomic.io/docs/atomicapp/
