How to contact the owner of specific images


(Seinfield) #1

Hi guys,
I am just curious if there is a way to contact the owner of an image. I need to get more detail about the image.

Please help.

Thanks in advanced. :slight_smile:

I believe both of the following will tell you the author’s email address, if they’ve chosen to advertise it:

docker inspect -f '{{.Author}}' imagename
docker history --no-trunc image name | grep MAINTAINER

Both of those things will tell you what name (if any) was listed as the MAINTAINER in the Dockerfile that built the image.

If you got the image from the Docker Hub, the author may have provided a source repository link to Github. These repos often have the ability to post an issue or other contact information…
