I cannot speak for hydra. On emba, I don't know political restrictions;
it's rather that nobody has done it. Emba is a giitlab instance; if
somebody could point me where to get proper docker containers based on
*BSD, MacOS and Windows, we could try it.

I've tried to install a MacOS VM on my laptop, and I failed. Could you
pls point me to a proper starting point (web page, I guess)?
