I went to the github link you gave and had a look at the viewvc.conf
file. It looks like almost everything inside it is commented out and
it also states there is not yet able to run as a service...
What really "docker" is eludes me however, could you expand a bit on
it? It must be something general since I noticed this at the bottom of
#sudo apt-get install docker.io

So I could perhaps use it as a testing tool, but then I could as well
use the standalone.py file which is part of viewvc itself, right?

In any case both standalone.py and the docker thing seems to publish
the view on localhost:someport, which kind of defeats the object here.
I want the view to be available from computers outside of the server
so it has to be published to the eth0 interface.

I made this happen in standalone.py by editing it and changing the
host variable so it uses the server's address (hardcoded) and hostname
(also hardcoded).
Then I was able to run standalone.py and view the result on

Looked all right, but has now to be transported into Apache2...
