SCRIPTS

       The following container scripts are available:

       debootstrap
           Basic script to create Debian based container, see container-create-debootstrap(1).

       debconf
           Advanced script to automatically create Debian based container, see
           container-create-debconf(1).

       default
           Symlink (if existing) to a container script which is used if no script was specified.
           On Debian based system this can be managed through update-alternatives(1), i.e.  sudo
           update-alternatives --config container_script.

EXAMPLES

       Create example.net container using debootstrap script:
           sudo container create -n example.net -s debootstrap

       Create example.net container using debconf script:
           sudo container create -n example.net -s debconf

       Create example.net container with the default create script and start it:
           sudo container create,start -n example.net
