I have tested building a docker image for my needs, alternately with
FROM cimg/python:3.11 and
the from cimg image is 2.8GB in size, while the from: python:3.11-bookworm-slim image is 700MB.
However, pulling the larger image appears faster as I’m always noticing that there is a substantial amount of layers already available on the host.
Is this behavior something I can count on in all cases? Is it documented anywhere?
