The Docker Hub web site marks them so, and users trust them more. They
tend to be up to date.

Docker Inc. provides some maintenance and review for such images, so
they are in many ways an investment for the company. I don't know more,
I've never made or maintained an official image. But GCC is up there, as
I said, so there's a precedent.

I think FSF/GNU software can be part of that ecosystem, but if not then
we should look at our own FSF/GNU Docker Hub repository. Either way,
users will benefit. Right now there's nothing official.
