# * musl: standard C library
# * lib6-compat: compatibility libraries for glibc
# * linux-headers: commonly needed, and an unusual package name from Alpine.
# * build-base: used so we include the basic development packages (gcc)
# * bash: so we can access /bin/bash
# * git: to ease up clones of repos
# * ca-certificates: for SSL verification during Pip and easy_install
# * freetype: library used to render text onto bitmaps, and provides support font-related operations
# * libgfortran: contains a Fortran shared library, needed to run Fortran
# * libgcc: contains shared code that would be inefficient to duplicate every time as well as auxiliary helper routines and runtime support
# * libstdc++: The GNU Standard C++ Library. This package contains an additional runtime library for C++ programs built with the GNU compiler
# * openblas: open source implementation of the BLAS(Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) API with many hand-crafted optimizations for specific processor types
# * tcl: scripting language
# * tk: GUI toolkit for the Tcl scripting language
# * libssl1.0: SSL shared libraries

# * scipy: library used for scientific computing and technical computing
# * scikit-learn: machine learning library integrates with NumPy and SciPy
# * pandas: library providing high-performance, easy-to-use data structures and data analysis tools
# * nltk: suite of libraries and programs for symbolic and statistical natural language processing for English
