I think that makes a _lot_ of sense, but I suspect that people who 
haven't used Docker before (like me) would need a bit more info than is 
currently in 

It looks like this is something that "can be made to work" rather than 
"actually does work now" (specifically, see 
and https://github.com/geo-data/openstreetmap-tiles-docker/pull/19 , 
which is still open).

It's also unclear after an initial scan of the text there what OSM data 
will be loaded, what OSM style will be used and whether I need Apache 
externally, among other things.  That doesn't mean that there's anything 
wrong with it - it just might need (depending on the audience) a bit 
more wrapped around it.
