LXC & Collectd bugs

I would like to ask about status of LXC in LuCI.
Where is the problem? Can we expect fix?
I do not actually find this to be very high priority issue there is no problem to set it via CLI.

I am actually interested in collectd, there were words about plans to have more from LEDE in Turris.
I see PaKon is what is priority now, but collectd is one of more interesting parts of OPENWRT that many would like to see working fully.

LXC in general is working but you have to create the containers over ssh first with
lxc-create -t download -n <container_name>
After that it can also be managed via LuCI

There is also a small problem when shutting down a container with lxc-stop: `lxc-stop -n <container>` takes too long
Shutdown from LuCI or from inside the container works though.


In a new release, which we’re preparing there is a fix for installing LXC containers in LuCI.
Keep in mind that we recommend using LXC containers on external storage (like USB stick or HDD/SSD) and we’re rewriting the article about LXC containers, which you can find in our documentation.

I am afraid that collectd doesn’t have high priority for us right now and it will be fixed in Turris OS 4.0.

// EDIT: I almost forget… Recently we were forced to change tarball for Alpine Linux.
