Dear list,

For want of a better list to send this, I have a few questions regarding
running ArchivesSpace containerised. List archives suggest this has not
been brought up in a while and it was exactly a year ago that Laney
McGlohon added words to docs/user/docker.md reading 'Docker is not
supported as an install method'. Whilst I believe I have a pretty good
idea of at least some of the answers, I think it might be useful to know

 - if people run it in production using containers all the same;
 - what the developers think the obstacles are to it being supported as
   containerised workload;
 - what they think needs to happen for it to become supported;
 - what can the community do to advance this.

I currently maintain several Docker-based development and staging
instances and several other systems including user training and
production systems that run bare, and it would be lovely to be able to
optimise the latter away, so my interest in this is not at all academic.
