Buildah is a command line tool which facilitates building OCI container


The buildah package provides a command line tool which can be used to

create a working container, either from scratch or using an image as a
starting point
create an image, either from a working container or via the instructions
in a Dockerfile
images can be built in either the OCI image format or the traditional
upstream docker image format
mount a working container's root filesystem for manipulation
unmount a working container's root filesystem
use the updated contents of a container's root filesystem as a
filesystem layer to create a new image
delete a working container or an image

*** Parking Notice *** *** MIT just changed to new parking regulations ***
Parking at MIT without a Permit
MIT parking permits are required for all vehicles on MIT property.
Vehicles without MIT parking permits parked in any MIT parking area will
be subject to ticketing or towing. ​

After Hours
Anyone with a valid MIT parking permit can park his/her vehicle in any
parking facility on campus after 2:30 PM, Monday through Friday, and all
day on weekends and MIT holidays. Please note that parking is only
allowed in spots that are not otherwise reserved.

​Change here is that permits for any lot now valid in all lots after
2:30; previously permits were not required per website after 5 and in
reality after 3, but now no. Parking is at risk. Cambridge meters and
the pay lots and garages are the only safe options.

E51 ceases to be extra awesome, now merely great (T) and A/V. ​

The parking lot on the corner of vassar St and Mass Ave is available

After the meeting we will adjourn to the official after meeting meeting
location at The Cambridge Brewing Company
