community.docker 2.7.0 has been released (changelog). This will likely be the last 2.x.0 minor release. The collection is now preparing for release 3.0.0 with many major changes under the hood.

Matrix Room Shields for repo READMEs?

I've opened an example PR for displaying a Shields.io shield for a Matrix room inside the README of a repository. This is the same kind of thing as you often see for test coverage, code coverage, Python versions, etc.

I think this is an useful extra way for maintainers to direct users to the right place to get help, and has the nice side-effect of demonstrating the large vibrant community we have. I'm looking to get feedback on whether this should go in the template repo, so that people know it's an option - what are your thoughts? Please comment on the PR!
