2. b. Solr docs generated by ActiveFedora and Hyrax::ValkyrieWorkIndexer. See Issue #4487.  (Lynette Rayle )

Why does AF and Valkyrie WorkIndexer create different solr documents? Should they?
Tom - not strictly goal for them to match; some fields only for AF internals; missing fields probably because valkyrie work hasn't gotten that far yet
Lynette - take offline with Tom? Tom go ahead and do what you need to do - feedback in PRs (submit early and often to avoid going down wrong path)

2. c. Container image publishing for Samvera (tamsin woo ) Hyrax docker-compose development environment:

Base image that other Hyrax apps could build on top of
configurable by passing in system dependencies like ruby versions
Should this be published publicly? Where? Gitlab, Dockerhub, etc.
Docker development environment closer to production environment to avoid confusion (around solr_wrapper and fcrepo_wrapper not for production)
Tom wants people to try and poke holes in docker config and offer suggestions (change solr container version, etc.)
Wants to know if anything here should be published as samvera supported
Includes test application at .dassie - both/and approach retaining engine_cart; can be used for testing upgrades while engine_cart can still be used to test generators different rubies/rails
Julie H -> is this suitable for non-devs (Tom go for it!)
