Override files

In the case that the user wants to add files or override them in the image it can be done stated on this section. This is particularly useful for example to add a cronjob or add certificates.

Since docker 0.10 removed the command docker insert the image needs to be built from source.

For this a folder overrides/ inside the path image/ can be created. All files from there will be copied to the root of the system. So, for example, putting the following file image/overrides/etc/ssl/certs/cloud.crt would result in that file being put on /etc/ssl/certs/cloud.crt on the final image.

After that just run sudo make and the image will be created.
