Islandora CLAW: Solr Docker Image

:heavy_exclamation_mark: :heavy_exclamation_mark: :heavy_exclamation_mark:

Since Islandora CLAW has moved development to Drupal 8, our Docker images no longer function properly. We recommend using the vagrant build instead. Please follow the Islandora listserv and weekly CLAW Tech Calls for updates about the status of Docker and Ansible with Islandora CLAW.

Please note that even with vagrant, there is not yet a stable release of Islandora CLAW. We welcome your volunteer contributions to help get the project to production.
