OK.  Whatever works for you.

The point I was making was that it is not a black and white matter.
Depending on the use case, a stable Debian system with a third party
docker package may not actually be a better solution than a testing
system with official Debian packages for Docker.  Then again, it may be
that the third-party packages on stable are the better approach.

That decision is ultimately up to Luís.
