Ah also one thing that I wonder in Packer is versioning. Since in docker we can tag every release of the image, we can somehow do versioning on that.

1. How is the versioning in Packer?

2. Also, do you have plan to adopt docker image/ other containerization pattern even if you already used packer for 3+ years? Maybe you have different use cases for adopting docker?

1. We just commit packerfile to repo and version through git 2. We've talked about it. The problem is we have some stateful processes we can't trust to container- like database stuff/etc. So its really a matter of separating what is safe to containerize or not.
