Hi Dale
Docker is now firmly entrenched in the industry; would you be able to
create a PR to set up the Dockerfile in the project root (or /util), and
add a few notes in the wiki to help complete docker newbies? e.g.
- how to set up a dev environment
- automate build and install
You may be aware we're moving away from travis to github actions.
