Re: [scl.org] Image naming for centos-based images

Based on what I've seen on this thread so far, I think there's a general consensus that:
1) the long form names are useful in certain situations
2) the short form also have value

and as such, we should simply use the alias approach so we can advertise and reference the images in the most appropriate way for the context/requirements of different scenarios.

Therefore I'm proceeding with updating the openshift v3 release to assume the long form names will be available:

FWITW, I agree with Michal and Honza here.

There were 2 primary reasons to include the Platformdifferentiator:
* As stated in the policy [1], the primary purpose was to allow builders of layered images to understand what underlying platform they would be using and give them explicit control.
* In addition we wanted to ensure that the RHEL name show-up in searches (one of the reasons why this is a cert requirement).

I think the question here is really how we will tag the ruby/python/etc
images then.
Now we deal just with centos7, so we can have centos/ruby-20 (or
centos/ruby even).
How when centos8 will be out, centos/ruby-20 will be based on centos8?
What will happen
to centos7 images? How users will know what base those images have? ;-)

Thank you for rephrasing, that's basically my point all the time. We just need to be able to distinguish it somehow, even if it is crucial only for part of the users and others will ignore it.

             What will happen once centos8 is released? Do you think
        then executing
             centos8 image on centos7 or vice versa will be supported?
