Brett and I want to promote this more widely within the Python community as the “official Python Docker image” that projects can use in their own testing environments, or base their own images on it. We wanted to give you guys a heads up first to get your feedback, and maybe thoughts on the best places to promote this, e.g. on the python.org website or other places.
Well, the place to get a python Docker image listed would be https://hub.docker.com/_/python/. That's the first google hit for python docker, and it already has a host of images available. How does yours differ from those? It sounds like it is by having multiple versions and tox so you can test your library/ap against multiple Python versions using a single container. That does sound useful :)
But, be careful with names. "official Python Docker image" sounds like what one would use when one wants to *run* a python application in a docker container, which is what the images that are currently listed on the page mentioned above seem directed at.
