A scheme of Docker-based Version Control for Open Source Project

When Open Source Projects are processed by multiple developers, the Version Control Systems, which control the different versions of the same file being used, is a very useful tool. On the other hand, because most of conventional VCS(SVN, Git, etc.) mainly control the history of the modifications of the source codes or documents, there is an inconvenience that each developer should modify the development environment whenever the development environment is modified. To overcome this inconvenience, this paper suggests a scheme of VC for OSP. The basic concept of the suggested scheme is that an image, including the development environment and controls, is created as a new version using the Docker, virtualization tool of the container method. To review the functional appropriateness of the suggested scheme, after establishing the Docker on the hosts that use the different OS( Ubuntu12.0.4, CentOS7), this study tested a VC that could control the different versions including the history of modifications of the development environment and evaluated them by a comparison with the conventional VCS. The results show that the suggested scheme is a convenient scheme of VC for the OSP.
