Why does Aptible provide quay.io/aptible/... base images?

Aptible has historically provided a variety of open source base Docker images you can use to build your own Docker images from.

These images were originally created when Docker didn’t provide many official base images on the Docker Hub, and the ones that were made available weren’t always very usable.

For all frameworks, we now recommend that you use the official images provided on the Docker Hub. For example, instead of using quay.io/aptible/ruby, you should use the official ruby image.
