I would like to state again that we (i.e. the GNU project) already have
a way to build valid Docker images for Emacs using GNU Guix.  It does
not even involve the use of Docker, nor does it require a third-party
“base image” of a GNU+Linux system.

For the lack of up-to-date HTML documentation see the Texinfo source
file of the manual here:


Since Guix abides by the FSDG we can also be certain that the generated
image contains nothing but software libre.

Would it be helpful if the Guix project provided a Docker image for the
latest release for download?  To me it seems only natural for GNU Emacs
and GNU Guix to cooperate; it’s all GNU.
