adriancole commented on issue #2544: Fix issues needed prior to graduation
   On the docker topic, as I understand it, the problem is advertising a third party image.
Clearly, there is no requirement to even have a docker image. For example, Kafka produces
none, though the commercial company behind it does.
   I can grok not wanting to be a sneaky ad for a commercial package, but I don't know where
exactly a problem would be in mentioning images that predated apache and are completely non-commercial
in nature. It seems odd that Apache would actually have a problem with a healthy ecosystem
that produces tools for it to the point where it intentionally wants you to make it hard to
find them. However, we seem to be in a culture which is against things and I am tired of arguing
against the grain for sensible pragmatism.
   I think the work and confusion involved in splitting our docker images between the openzipkin
namespace and apache namespace is more of a burden than instructing people manually how to
find docker images. What that seems to mean is deleting references to the openzipkin images
until the leadership in ASF decide that OSS ecosystems are nothing to be afraid of.
