Bringing Edison to Docker (or vice-versa)

– Description for the changelog
Add Andrew Wiles, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Edison to container names

British mathematician Andrew Wiles is notable for solving Fermat’s Last
Theorem. Florence Nightingale was the first female inducted into the
Royal Statistical Society. Thomas Alva Edison was a prolific inventor,
noted for inventing the incandescent light bulb, the phonograph and the
motion picture camera (among many other).
