All open source projects with docker images hosted on docker.io have 
recently received a "Docker is sunsetting Free Team organizations" 
email, which indicates that they will be suspending our account on April 
14, 2023 unless we upgrade to a paid subscription (cf 
https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/issues/7447). There's little interest in 
doing so (I've also tried to apply to their open source program, but 
there's some indication that it won't qualify for it), given that GitHub 
Container repository (ghcr.io) does the same job without the rate limit, 
so I've instead migrated the existing images to the ghcr.io.  You can 
see them at https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/pkgs/container/gdal

So instead of osgeo/gdal:{tagname}, you must now use 

Our scripts and docs have been updated per 
https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/pull/7463 . New images will no longer be 
pushed to the docker.io registry. Existing images remain for now, until 
the account gets suspended (or even if Docker back-pedals, I guess we'll 
eventually remove the *-latest tags to avoid people using outdated stuff 
without knowing)


My software is free, but my time generally not.
