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

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.
