I completely understand that chasing Linux technologies from FreeBSD can be
a pain.
I hope that when you have time, and maybe when the churn in Docker slows
down a bit,
you manage to figure out a way to keep Docker
on FreeBSD going.  FreeBSD has had jails for many years,
and bhyve for a few years and these are both very solid and capable

However, they don't have the buzz and integration with third party
workflows that Docker has.
For example, I've seen how GitLab uses Docker to spawn build nodes, and it
works really, really well.

It would be a shame to see FreeBSD be left in the dust on this.
