Is setup_remote_docker really needed?


#1

The CircleCI2.0 documentation tells us:

To build Docker images for deployment, you must use a special setup_remote_docker key which creates a separate environment for each build for security

And yet CircleCI’s own docker image build project seems to get away with not calling setup_remote_docker at all:

Can anyone explain this?


#2

This job is generating Dockerfiles not the actual images. If you look at the next section of the circle.yml it should make more sense.
