I think this would be a good idea as configuring a machine for building can be a barrier to
entry for people wishing to contribute.

 Now that we have a docker build environment [1], I’d like to ask INFRA to automate the
creation and publishing of docker images for geode-native.  This can be done by integrating
GitHub / DockerHub [2].  Note that the docker image would *only* be for build purposes and
would not contain source or binaries from geode-native.  By publishing our build toolchain
in a docker image:
