Re: [atomic-devel] Storage for system containers

If we move the link under /var/lib/containers/docker then removing this would not affect /var/lib/containers/ostree or /var/lib/containers/storage

The only issue I have with using the same location is that when troubleshooting, it's fairly common to wipe the storage pool. I think we'd want users to rm -rf /var/lib/docker without worrying about removing system containers.

Is this still an issue after the current partition scheme moves to OverlayFS?

In Fedora Atomic Host if we use system containers as advertised
we end up using `atomic pull --storage ostree` which by default
throws images into /var/lib/containers/atomic/. This is on the
root filesystem which may be undesirable.

Since in Fedora 26 the new version of container-storage-setup allows
us greater control over a "CONTAINER_ROOT" should we consider trying
to make sure both ostree storage and docker storage get placed under

The current default [1] is to just mount the CONTAINER_ROOT on
