Thanks Karl,

I already have docfiles and srcfiles disabled (and tlpdbopt_create_formats=0)

I trim about 46M by removing these files:

8.1M	/var/task/texlive/2017/bin/x86_64-linux/luajittex
7.9M	/var/task/texlive/2017/bin/x86_64-linux/luatex
400K	/var/task/texlive/2017/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb
13M	/var/task/texlive/2017/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb.712d2ebb90babb07f11d145f4eea99aa
9.7M	/var/task/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/source/latex/koma-script/doc
7.7M	/var/task/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/doc

I guess the doc is being installed because of adding packages with  tlmgr install after install-tl.

You cans see the details in the Dockerfile here:
