9 Docker isn't the only container manager out there... Hopefully they
10 only populate it if it already exists. But, yes, you can bind mount
11 an individual file.
13 In any case, my concern isn't so much with using /etc/hostname to SET
14 the hostname. My concern is more with having other processes read
15 /etc/hostname to determine the hostname. It just isn't the right way
16 to do things.
18 Maybe it should just be installed chmod 600 by default? :)
