I was referring to this PPA
Isn’t it maintained by the CouchDB project? I guess my question is if it were preferable
to use such a pre-built package instead of building from source.

The docker image for 2.0 is currently tagged as 2.0-dev to make it clear that it’s a developer
preview. It could also be called 2.0-alpha. Maybe 2.0 isn’t ready for the official image,
but it should be docker-available somewhere to ease testing.

I’m not sure if this is caused by my wrapper shell script.

I don’t really understand why it doesn’t in the container, though.
