The Phusion team would have you believe that all other base images are inferior and you are unsafe.
“YOUR DOCKER IMAGE MIGHT BE BROKEN” –LinkThis statement is particularly troubling. Not because my base image is vulnerable but that these guys think so little of the Docker team’s ability to create base images correctly. As it turns out there are 12 base images that are considered “from the source”.
ubuntu, ubuntu-upstart, debian, centos, busybox, fedora, opensuse, cirros, crus, neurodebian, scratch, oracle-linuxPhusion’s baseimage is present in the docker registry, however, the phusion user is NOT “trusted” and there are plenty of forks by users with “trust”. So while their claims are appreciated in one sense they are meritless if not incomplete.
