Well, we have two options:

Option 1: More people can build ISOs and more people can sign the ISO.

Option 2: We automate the process and sign the ISO on our server with a
new public key. Thats how nixOS or voidlinux do this.

No idea about the bootstrap image. Is there a big difference between the
bootstrap image and `pacstrap` in some random directory?

I would love to automate that as well, but I don't know a good process
for it yet. My first thought was that we automate docker via packer as
well, but unfortunately packer doesn't support docker builds. It
shouldn't be that difficult to automate it with some bash magic..

Just register at dockerhub and I can add you to the Arch Linux Group.
(this applies to every other developer as well. If you want access just
register an account and message me)
