This article describes a few challenges with solutions, to get LXC and LXD to run on the latest Fedora release.
Setup an LXC host with Ansible
This is my first go at Ansible. Ansible uses SSH to setup servers with a desired environment. The scripts can be run again and again, and only apply things that have changed since the previous run. Please also see this
Easy installation of LightBuildServer

Setting up a Remote Linux Workstation in a Linux Container (LXC)
This post shows how to setup a workstation for various Linux distributions. This uses the lxc scripts described in this blog post: http://www.pokorra.de/2015/02/setting-up-a-server-hosting-several-containers-with-some-useful-lxc-scripts/ Inside a container, you can install an LXDE or XFCE desktop and X2Go server.

Setting up a server hosting several containers with some useful LXC scripts

Using Flockport with Jiffybox

Creating an OpenSUSE LXC container on Ubuntu 12.04
I thought it would be good to create an OpenSUSE container on my Ubuntu LXC machine. I am using the existing OpenSUSE template in /usr/lib/lxc/templates/lxc-opensuse, and some SUSE packages built by Thomas-Karl Pietrowski for Ubuntu from https://launchpad.net/~thopiekar/+archive/zypper, and the build scripts from
LXC Linux containers on JiffyBox running CentOS on Ubuntu
This post covers several topics at once: I have got some experience with OpenVZ, and was looking how LXC could satisfy the requirements that I am used to. Especially how to install several Linux distributions on one LXC host. I
