this image.

  • all from :latest (though versions may be outdated)
  • Pyston
    • pyston (0.6)

Their sources are
Felix Krull's Deadsnakes PPA,
the Python sources,
the Pyston sources,
and PyPy's builds.

The images are supposed to be a base for testing Python-code against historical
and most recent interpreters. Some further tools for are on board, see below.


The latest pip available at build time is installed for versions CPython
2.6, 2.7, 3.3 and onwards. Those for PyPy are called pyp2 respectively
pyp3. For Pyston there's pyston-pip, note that this installs executables
to /opt/pyston/bin.
