Nowadays a container based deployment becomes industry standard which we should fully support and prominently feature as supported for simple single-instance setups of individual persons

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: documentation exists for simple single-instance setups, e.g. "get your openQA tests to run in less than 5 minutes"
  • AC2: not more than a couple of shell script lines, at best 1 line
  • AC3: The documentation suggests a single way for newcomers, not overwhelms with too many alternatives in parallel
