Bug#962303: ITP: dockerscript -- Builds and runs Dockerfiles in one command

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Denis Babochenko <babochenko.denis@yandex.ru>

* Package name    : dockerscript
  Version         : 1.0.1
  Upstream Author : Denis Babochenko <babochenko.denis@yandex.ru>
* URL             : https://github.com/stasmihailov/docker-script
* License         : GPL-2
  Programming Lang: Bash
  Description     : Builds and runs Dockerfiles in one command

dockerscript is a cli docker plugin which enables execution of Dockerfiles
via a single "docker script" command. This command builds an image, then
starts a container with that image and attaches to it via a tty.

For example, "docker script from ubuntu" starts an instance of ubuntu, since
"from ubuntu" is a valid Dockerfile.

You could pass a link to Dockerfile or directory containing it to this
command, e.g. "docker script /path/to/my/Dockerfile"

I personally use this package. Essentially, it is an effort to try make docker
more accessible for basic prototyping. Some of prototyping use cases might be:
 - testing out some script / functionality in an isolated environment before
   running it locally
 - executing same Dockerfile in different Linux distributions to verify that
   it works on each of them
 - simple virtualization; for example, I created this request via debian
   which was ran by `docker script from debian` command, because
   `reportbug` is not available in ubuntu, which is may daily driver

Also, I need a sponsor for this package, as I am not a Debian Developer
and cannot upload it to a distro myself
