Natanael Copa joins us to talk about Alpine's story. From being dead scared to fork the initial version off from Gentoo to Alpine becoming bigger than himself and making sure it stays around with a good bus factor. If you ever wondered how exactly apk is so incredibly fast, that is also covered - and what plans there are to make it even faster in the future. Also what would be necessary to get reproducible builds in Alpine and more. Enjoy!

Featuring @ollieparanoid, @calebccff, @MartijnBraam, @pabloyoyoista, @ncopa (in order of appearance).
