Yes, just Dockerfile (+ docs & tests), nothing in binary form.

Yes, that's precisely what I had in mind. As for the location, it
would make sense if others would cast their vote. One option would be
macports-base (as that's what we are basically shipping), else

I don't know whether or not it would make sense to run PortIndex at
image creation as that would make the image rather non-reproducible
(different image every time when you try to create it).

In any case it might be nice to generate the portindex for linux on the server
which would dramatically reduce the startup time.
