definitely not, I think the amount of various apt repositories will rise

RedHat realized that and is providing their Universal Base Image now,
which can be freely shared in container images.

I'm wondering if there is something Debian can do to be even more
successful in the container world. Like regular releases of a container
base image from testing. The amount of packages that needed for that is
limited, the number of RC bugs is probably low enough most of the time.
