The Docker folks host an image for CentOS Linux 6 here :
https://index.docker.io/_/centos/ - looking to upgrade this image, and
to take ownership of that account ( for the CCIS ) I've built an image,
which is in line with the existing image they host, but has been updated
to include content released via mirror.centos.org to today.

is the image

please test

worth noting that this is represented as CentOS-6, dropping the point
release and replacing it with a date - means we can update it more
frequently than only at every point release time ( and we set user
expectation around that ). We can, if there is a need, still push images
that are in line with a point release snapshot.

Unless there is reason not to, Jim and I will start working towards
replacing that docker official centos image with his one in the next 24 hrs.
