I have been using the Db2 image from Docker Hub to test Db2 11.5. This has been an invaluable option to quickly get an instance up and running, so we can test the new features.
However, I have run into some issues with the image. One such (minor!) issue is that if you have TEXT_SEARCH=false set in your environment, the shutdown scripts will still attempt to do `db2ts "stop for text" ` despite having the option disabled.
If there was a repository of the scripts available (e.g., on GitHub), I would be interested in submitting a pull request to fix some of the minor issues I have run into, but currently there is no place to do that.
Why is it useful?

How should it work?
I suggest that you provide the set of scripts (Dockerfile, custom shell scripts, etc.) used to build the Docker image on a code-sharing platform such as GitHub. There are already some Db2 projects shared this way at https://github.com/ibmdb (for example, the Node.js driver).
I believe that providing these scripts in such a way would provide a few primary benefits:
Some of these scripts can already be found in the image itself at `/var/db2_setup`. Making them public would provide the Db2 community a great resource!
