docker without password prompting

Just a little snippet.  This should be pretty obvious to those familiar with how sudo functions, but it’s easy to run docker commands with sudo without being prompted for your password by configuring sudo to not ask for it.

Note that the normal warnings and red flags apply here.

If you install the above as /etc/sudoers.d/docker, then the user rsrchboy (line 1) and any user in the docker group (line 2) will not be asked for a password when running “sudo docker …”.

Again, the normal warnings and red flags apply here.
