Set up automated local testing environment for Snowflake
The goal is to set up a locally networked testing environment for Snowflake that can be easily and automatically set up and run. This will include the easy installation and configuration of dependencies.
Hopefully this environment will be able to reproduce bugs that have occurred in the deployed system (such as #25688 (moved)) that have so far not been reproducible locally. That will be one of the benchmarks for this ticket to see whether or not the local environment is close enough to a deployed one.
The current idea is to use networked docker containers.
Perhaps farther in the future, it might be interesting to see if we can do some kind of continuous integration with gitlab: https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/ci/#gitlab-cicd-for-docker.
