Thank you all.
From what I’ve seen it is more efficient to pull Docker images instead of simply copying the entirety of Github to the intranet in question (Or all the dependencies, if there were an easy way to list them all outside of the packages retrieved by ‘go get’). What I meant by difficult is retrieving all the dependencies from the various sources the projects builds itself, in order to run properly without fail.
The desire to install a CA certificate on a server that doesn’t serve the internet, does conflict with Let’s Encrypt’s mission statement, but it does not conflict with the use cases for which I’m looking to use the open-source technology the project is based on.
I do understand Let’s Encrypt’s mission and I highly support it, it’s just that I’m trying to see if the CA technology you provide fits my use cases in various ways. And stemming from that mission statement I also understand the current focus, and the lack for a production ops manual like @_az suggested.
Still, I don’t think it’s downright impossible to make the process of container-less deployment a lot more efficient. As of now I’m more focused on running the solution and experimenting with it in my intranet, so future questions I may have will be Boulder-operation-oriented.
Again, thank you for your time, and apologies if the question was … strange/misunderstood.
