[Dev] Should we have a parabola image on docker hub?

Hello all!

I also wanted to ask someone to make Parabola docker container: as a Free Software developer,
I already use only free development tools, and would be glad to have a fully free testing environment for my programs.

Now I'm using Trisquel semi-official docker image (https://hub.docker.com/r/kpengboy/trisquel/).
Semi-official because the Trisquel project still didn't give it an official status (would be nice to have).
May be Parabola team could make their image fully offical?

Also, the docker hub isn't the only registry out there: there is also much more nice and powerful registry here: https://quay.io/
One of their main advantages is regular automatic testing of stored images for vulerabilities (https://blog.quay.io/quay-secscanner-clair1/).
Others are support of rkt containers (much more secure and isolated than docker ones, see https://coreos.com/rkt/),
support for Gitlab (instead of github only at docker hub),
multiple parallel builds for several images (versus only one at docker hub) and colorful badges for image statuses (ready/building/failed).

It also could be a place to host the parabola docker image.
They offer free unlimited public images and ask for payments only if someone want private ones.
I myself already use this service (https://quay.io/repository/korobkov/trisquel-chruby and similar)
and could definitely advice it to others.
