Docker might be handy if you need a whole array of tools, say R, Org, a
number of libraries etc etc.  It's not too complicated to created new
docker images and you can host/compile them on "dockerhub".  You can find
the files that create docker images on e.g. github.

Personally, I use an external config.el file to publish files against the
ELPA version of Org.

Something like,

    emacs --batch --no-init-file --load paper-config/org-conf.el --find-file $1 
--funcall $2

In addition, I compile the papers with gitlab-ci.  You can include
instructions of what software is needed in the .gitlab-ci.yml.

You might also be able to use something like Guix.  I think it can even be
used to create docker images these days.

Hope it helps,
