Permit additional registry types (beyond `DOCR`,`DOCKER_HUB`)


The Apps spec only permits registry types of DOCR and DOCKER_HUB.

It would be useful to permit additional registries including GitHub Container Registry (GHCR) and Google Container Registry.

I assume this limitation is partly due to [DO] cost but, without it, the developer incurs the costs in managing duplicate images across registries.

Hello @dazwilkin

There are plans of supporting additional registries in the future. We will be sharing all the feature releases and updates in our release notes:

Moreover, I encourage you to share your thoughts about this on our ideas page:

Running into this same limitation. I would like to be able to run containers that exist in as an App. Am I expected to deploy and self-maintain Docker images that do not exist within DockerHub and DOCR?
