Hi All,

I am proposing CF Local for inclusion in the Extensions PMC as a new
incubating project.

CF Local is a CF CLI plugin that acts as a translation layer between CF
apps and a local (or remote) Docker daemon. CF Local allows you to stage
and launch CF apps locally, as well as pull them from or push them to a
real deployment of CF. CF Local also makes it easy to iterate on CF apps
without re-staging them by utilizing a combination of volume mounts and SSH
tunnels to services running in CF.

CF Local was demoed during the August CAB call [1].

CF Local is currently available on Github [3].


Project Name: CF Local
Project Proposal: See [2], and attached.
Proposed Project Lead: Stephen Levine, Buildpacks Project Lead
Proposed Scope: See [2], and attached.
Development Operating Model: Distributed committer
Technical Approach: CF CLI plugin that communicates directly with the
Docker daemon. See [2], and attached.

Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback.
