TL;DR

The Docker image generation for skfold, done via dibs, has been made a bit cleaner.

After having finally produced a couple of base images for doing stuff with Perl (see Docker base images for Perl), I moved the skfold generation of a Docker image on to use those images.

This means that the fatpacked version is produced inside the container, which in my opinion is a bit saner than before. Not too much. It also means that the whole process should be usually faster, because I donโ€™t have to re-create the builder environment from scratch every time.

Iโ€™m still using the fatpacked version because itโ€™s smaller and saves about 800 kbyte according to a rule of thumb. With this new way of generating images, though, it will be much easier to revert to a local-based setup like most of my other Perl projects brought in Docker.
