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” stream and 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 centos8 and centos7. There’s still a lot of stuff using them, but they’re not updated for months:

What next?

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.
