admin without sudo docker exec -it cocalc bash -- make the first user created be an admin automatically, and make admin be able to sudo #34

Make two changes only when running cocalc-docker:

  • first ever user created is an admin
  • admin users can sudo (to install more software).

Doing this would make cocalc-docker way more usable, and easier to use with "container image" launching in hosted platforms like Google Cloud Platform that don't (easily?) support sudo docker exec -it cocalc bash.
