The nova-docker driver discontinued because it was not maintained. In
the entire OpenStack community we could not find a second person to help
with the maintenance of it (it was only Dims doing any needed fixes).
This was even though the driver was known to be running in multiple
production clouds.

The project was shut down for that reason so that no one would
mistakenly assume there was any maintenance or support on it. If you or
others want to revive the project, that would be fine, as long as we can
identify 2 individuals who will step up as maintainers.
