FWIW, we have been early adopters and promoters of singularity (largely
within neuroimaging field), using it "daily".

- using https://singularity-hub.org/ as a public builder/archive for
  some images

- keeping all images under VCS using datalad (git-annex), with help of

- to facilitate archival, and reproducible execution (only recently
  singularity came up with -e) established
  https://github.com/ReproNim/containers/ which is a collection of
  singularity images for neuroimaging + a helper
  to ensure absent leakage of the outside env inside the containerized
  (without using -e) + where possible/needed (OSX) execute it via docker
  (there are some gotchas to resolve with some containers but generally
  should work)

May be would be of some help/information
