I have personally nothing against docker.
I think however what you are trying to do is a bit unusual, to say the
Intending to use (at least as I understood it) docker as a substitute for
SB2 is "wrong" (if you pass me the word).
sb2 is more than "just" a virtualization layer bind-mounting directories.
It manages build targets, for one, which docker does not know about,
and never will. Yes, of course you can have a single docker image for a
single build target, with all the replica which comes with it;
or you can have one docker image with multiple toolchains / target envs;
but then you have rolled your own sb2.
I cant but recall the words : those who do not understand Unix, are doomed
to reinvent it, poorly.
