It's a terminological question mostly. For the present, I've googled
this up:
I'll try if it works (in a dedicated poudriere tree).

I'm not the one to dictate to developers. I actually spoke with the guy,
he is pretty much OS-agnostic, and he told me "I don't see why this is a

you can always use Docker."

I did not tell him that we don't have Docker either.
