We are using one docker instance to sandbox the L2Ork Tweeter persistent public server. If you would like me to set something up for purrdata, particularly if you have pre-built docker scripts I'm happy to assist to the best of my ability.

I have a Docker image that can build and test PD. It's working for Debian stretch already and it'd be a short task to extend it for other Linux platforms.

In brief, the project at https://gitlab.com/samthursfield/purr-data-oci-images automatically builds the Docker images (using GitLab CI) and hosts them (using Gitlab Docker registry). Then you get the gitlab CI image to `registry.gitlab.com/samthursfield/purr-data-oci-images/amd64/debian:stretch`.

However, I have gitlab-runner *outside* Docker, running containers on the same machine. If Ico has a more complex setup, maybe the kubernetes or docker-machine backend would be better suited.
