Hello community,

we are trying to gather feedback on docker content removal behaviour in
Here are the use cases we came up with, please share your thoughts and

When it is desired to remove docker content from a repo, the expectations
are that:
   * when a docker image manifest is removed, all its blobs( not referenced
by other image manifests) are removed as well. Also tags that were
referencing this manifest will be removed.

   * When a docker manifest list is removed, all its manifests( not
referenced by other manifests lists and not tagged) are removed as well.
Furthermore, same story with the blobs. Also tags that were referencing
this manifest list will be removed.

   *When a tag is removed , only tag is removed.

Do you find this recursive removal behaviour useful and expect it work the
way it got described above? Or simple removal makes more sense, e.g. just
image manifest and its tag are removed?

Thank you.
