Subject Re: Removal of ibmcom/couchdb3 preview image
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2020 17:19:41 GMT
Bit more context:

12:10 <+Wohali> but we can't have a docker image out there that rides 
master available to the public
12:11 <+Wohali> other projects at Apache have been slapped hard on this
12:11 <wilhol_> ok - will look at getting it removed (I can't do it myself)
12:11 <+Wohali> thanks. it can go back up once there's an *official* 
release, but only for the official version
12:11 <+Wohali> it can't ride master or 3.x or whatever
12:12 <+Wohali> i can pull up the legal statements if there's a question
12:13 <+Wohali> wilhol_:
12:17 <+Wohali> wilhol_: the point being, easily consumable binary 
builds of things that aren't official releases are bad. :)
