The Docker image for MySQL 5.7.12 does not include mysqlsh.

How to repeat:
docker pull mysql/mysql-server
docker run --name mybox  -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=secret -d mysql/mysql-server
docker exec -ti mybox bash
# mysqlsh

bash: mysqlsh: command not found

We've added a separate Docker image for the Shell preview package, which can be found at https://hub.docker.com/r/mysql/shell/

The source for the image can be found at https://github.com/mysql/mysql-docker/tree/mysql-shell

Thanks for taking action quickly. 
I would not mind much if the shell and the server were installed on top of a lightweight distro, such as Alpine, but as it is, using the shell on Docker feels like a waste (239 + 296 MB for server + shell).

Still, I believe that the docker image for the server should include the shell.

The file size is an issue, yes. 

While Shell is still an alpha product we won't add it to the server image, but we're looking into making it smaller (this applies to the server image as well).

Once Shell hits GA we might include it in the regular server image.
