I just seriously started to look at the docker images that are available, in particular lsstsqre/centos:7-stack-lsst-distrib-w_2017_46
I had assumed the most recent images would use python 3 (and maybe even gcc 6) - but it seems the docker image is set up with py3 and gcc 4.8. Are there plans to update the versions of these bits?
Actually are the Dockerfiles generally available? I could roll my own, for my nefarious purposes and starting from something that is known to work would certainly make that easier.
