 Rocker Discussion - 2020  [https://github.com/rocker-
 org/geospatial/issues/31 here]

 The R Spatial Docker lead [http://carlboettiger.info Carl] reports that
 they have a Docker image updated to UbuntuGIS Focal --

 base --> (rocker/geospatial:latest) use the Ubuntu-focal libs, yielding
 Universe GEOS 3.8.0, GDAL 3.0.4, PROJ 6.3.1

 secondly, they have a named version that pulls from UbuntuGIS specifically
 -> (rocker/geospatial:ubuntugis)  yielding  UbuntuGIS    GEOS 3.8.1, GDAL
 3.1.3, PROJ 7.1.1

 third, they would like to build a setup that compiles the chain from
 source, but that is not ready now .. I suggested they start with GDAL 3.2x
 GEOS 3.8x  PROJ 7x

 over time, that last one could also be used for GEOS 3.9 dev,  and I know
 the GEOS team wants that

 from a Marketing point of view, I included "we/OSGeo dot org are
 interested to work well with the greater R community. and be appropriately
 visible to your users", so a logo added somewhere, a README entry ..
 things like that..
