Consolidate DevCentral Docker image
Open, HighPublic


Some components are missing from the nasqueron/phabricator image:

  • the ability to fetch code from a private repository for arcanist, libphutil and phabricator
  • the autoupdate mechanism to check if a production branch can be rebased against master
  • the SSH daemons

Currently, they're manually installed. That forbids us to treat this container as an immutable, throwable artifact.

Plan is to include them to nasqueron/phabricator or override in a nasqueron/devcentral image.

Tasks to do


To allow to clone repo per SSH and interact with them:

  1. Install relevant packages: sudo openssh-server
  2. Provide a SSH configuration: P292, we can drop Port 5022 as it was only used when DevCentral was on Dwellers and some other containers or locally we needed to interact with DevCentral
  3. Create a vcs user for SSH access: vcs:x:432:433:Phabricator VCS SSH access:/var/vcs:/bin/sh
  4. Give permission to vcs to sudo as app for VCS commands: vcs ALL=(app) SETENV: NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/git, /usr/bin/hg, /usr/bin/svnserve, /usr/bin/git-upload-pack, /usr/bin/git-receive-pack - could be saved as /etc/sudoers.d/phabricator-hosting
  5. Create an unit to launch SSH as /usr/sbin/sshd -f /etc/sudoers.d/phabricator-hosting
  6. Expose port 22
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install sudo openssh-server && \
    cd /opt/phabricator && \
    ./bin/config set phd.user app && \
    ./bin/config set diffusion.ssh-user vcs && \
     # create vcs user
