About the ISO bus factor: * I just recently put the whole process into a simple script to make it easier for anybody else to build ISOs. Unfortunately at least the signing process requires some manual work. See https://github.com/pierres/archiso-manager
About the official Docker Image: * The docker image archlinux/base is pretty young and I did some significant changes to its content lately. I am pretty happy with the result right now but some more field testing shouldn't hurt. On my virtual todo list is also figuring out whether we could reuse the created archlinux.tar for other containers as well * I did not look into the details of how we exactly need to proceed with making an "official" image. A few pull requests or some kind of setp-by-step plan (wiki or github) would help.
I am glad the interest in Arch within Docker and other containers is increasing.

The official images projects info is on  and  if you want to read more in-depth/updated information. I'll summarize here though:
1) A TU/Arch Linux "affiliate" submits a PR to the official images repository, which basically contains the following: 1. A tag name/image name 2. A sha256/ref of a commit/tag containig the image's information on *another* repository (in this case, our official dockerr image repo) 3. Image building instructions.
A PR to this repository is also required, not sure if you mentioned it :) 
Right, I omitted that one for the sake of brevity.
