At Docker, we’re working with our open source community to build a rich ecosystem of containerized images. In the past year alone, Docker users and partners have created 100,000+ images and pulled 200+ million images from Docker Hub. We’re proud of our progress to-date, and committed to the developers who rely on Docker images for critical workflows—whether they’re Official Repos released by Docker ourselves, or images created by the community.
Before Official Repos, it was members of the community like @Pilwon who got the public repositories going with content for their fellow users. We would like to thank @Pilwon for being an awesome and early creator of community images, which he posted in an account called ‘dockerfile’. Many of these images are very popular within the Docker community and this is a great example of our community stepping up to help others. The popularity of the ‘dockerfile’ repos have exceeded what @Pilwon had originally expected—so we came up with a plan together to make sure users get to keep using the latest and greatest images.
