Short Description
Ubuntu base image
Full Description

Ubuntu base image generator

Run sudo sh to generate a Ubuntu base image.
It will use debootstrap, create a tar-file, generate the Dockerfile
and add a SHA256 checksum of the created tar-file to a ENV in the Dockerfile. will also add .git and any previously generated tar-files
to .dockerignore.

The generated Ubuntu wily image will weigh in around 105M compared to the Docker hub library
version which is around 133M.

Build and verify

sudo sh <release> <mirror>

For example:

$ sudo sh trusty
$ docker build -t ubuntu -f Dockerfile .
$ docker run -t -i ubuntu bash
