I think I will probably get a master build against Qt5 in docker over the next couple of weeks (probably not this week as I am on holiday for the week). If someone wants to make a patch it will be most welcome. Also if there is interest, I can move my git repo referenced below to an official QGIS repo. My biggest problem, at the moment is that docker auto builds are not working as it always times out fetching packages. I’d like to have auto builds for all recent versions so that you can use the containers in production.

QGIS Desktop is mainly interesting for testing on your desktop, but there are also some other interesting use cases:

* Providing a sandboxed build on a network server with all packages etc then making it available to thin clients.
* QGIS Desktop is used directly by the QGIS Server docker recipe - which makes it really really easy to spin up a QGIS server instance on a server.
