[X-posting from ops-l]
Starting today, we are building
our base container images using debuerreotype instead than bootstrap-vz,
which is unmaintained . This is the same tool that is used for the
dockerhub debian images, and our images are now completely equivalent to
the debian base images, plus our own apt configuration.
With this change, we're also introducing a simpler nomenclature for our base images:
we will tag our images with "$codename" instead than with "wikimedia-$codename". Thus:
We have also added a new image based on the (yet unreleased, caveat emptor) debian bullseye.
will keep tagging the latest version of those images as
"wikimedia-stretch" and "wikimedia-buster" for the time being, in order
to allow for backwards compatibility, but we encourage everyone to
migrate eventually to the new naming.
