This image contains the tags: 20, heisenbug (20), latest (same as 20) and rawhide
FYI, this just in: This image is to be considered semi-official from fedora's side (until approved by fedora rel-eng), will try to get that done quick.
Including 19 is not an option?
@salttest 20 pretty much has everything 19 had and more.
if you need 19 explicitly let me know and I'll see what I can do :)
also, this image is semi-official, there will be a fedora rel-eng approved image coming out sometime soon (but I doubt it will have 19)
using docker 0.8.1 I get an error running this image, any ideas?

@zenoss could you disable selinux and check if this still occurs? Perhaps better to report this on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora (choose docker-io as component) (kinda hard to keep track of stuff here :) ) . Thanks!
Hey all docker-io rpm and fedora image users ... feel free to report issues to redhat's bugzilla section for fedora https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora (choose docker-io as component)
The fedora:20 and fedora:rawhide seem to point to the same Fedora 20 image. Can fedora:rawhide be fixed? Also filed as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1094372.
bash-4.2# yum install -y git
