Docker Hub perpetuates the usual freedom issue of software
repositories: it distributes non-libre software. That probably
explains why Trisquel doesn't endorse the particular docker
container on that site.

The libreplanet-discuss mailing list has touched the possibility
of creating a liberated docker repository,[1] in the same spirit
of libre distros like Parabola, and as part of what would be a
wider effort to provide FSDG-compliant repositories for
programming language package managers.[2]

I don't use Docker. I'm personally satisfied with our ISO images,
but of course I don't object to the mere creation of a Parabola
container for Docker. I just don't think Parabola should endorse
the Docker repository.
