Finally, they’re available! Wait a moment.. Actually they’re available for few months, just nobody published information about moving them to quay.io and dropped poor guys using hub.docker.com without any updates! Yes, that how they did!
I found new place accidentally, reading some news about CentOS Stream 9 on their blog. There was reference to CentOS 9 Stream dev builds of Docker images and I found “missing”
stream8 tags too. It’s not adding more confidence on my side to the CentOS project, when they’re not even communicating such changes publicly, sick!
Some might remember, I was so desperate because of no official Docker images of CentOS 8 Stream available in Docker Hub, I build them on my own.
What I don’t like, is that they completely stopped upgrading base images for
centos7. There’s still a lot of stuff using them, but they’re not updated for months:
I switched my image to use as base new location
quay.io/centos/centos:*. I’ll probably stay with my builds as I upgrade them on weekly basis. And because I squash them to single layer, they’re close to size of original images. Official images with all updates can easily get above 300MB.
