The docker.com images are maintained by myself at SUSE. Because of how we build them from https://build.opensuse.org/ and via https://registry.opensuse.org/ we can't actually "patch" 2.2 and 2.1, so we really only have latest. Hindsight is perfect I guess ....

I've also been really busy lately with other projects which probably hasn't helped me keep things "up to date" as they should be either.

If one of the others from the 389 team wanted I'm happy to give them admin on the hub.docker.com 389ds project so they can assist :)

Rolling back is easy using helm charts, but only if the image can be changed back from say 2.2.6 to 2.2.5 by helm. When using stable or 2.2 or similar, the new image will be fetched and the old one discarded, so it will be lost and no longer usable.

The challenge is building everything in that way.

As well, worth pointing out that 389-ds does not support *downgrades*. only upgrades. So downpatching may/may not always work.
