I'm trying to put together a Dockerfilethat builds ROS Indigo (just ros_comm for now) from source. I'm more or less following the wiki page instructions: Installing from source

Some things I've found so far:

I was finally able to put this Dockerfile together: ubuntu-ros-source It builds and installs ROS Indigo (ros_comm) from source on top of an Ubuntu Trusty image. The bootstrap tools are installed via pip

Adding it as an answer for future reference. Any feedback is highly welcome.

PS. I also ended up writing these as well:
