That's true, but I'm concerned that in addition to working around
transient issues this will potentially also mask permanent issues
that actually require developer intervention because both would look
exactly the same.
Additionally, if one were to create a libvirt fork in GitLab right
now their pipeline would fail because there simply wouldn't be a
previous container image to fall back to.
