Atlassian says they have an "eap" label for the latest EAP release in dockerhub:
"For the latest developer (EAP) release use atlassian/confluence-server:eap . This will install our latest milestone (not supported for use in production)."
It's not true. There is no such tag in Confluence's docker hub. We need it.
There is a "latest" image and we use that for the latest published version but we need an "eap" label so we don't have to dig through the various "76-eap-1", "76-eap-2", ... labels to find the latest EAP image.
Every time there is an EAP release we have to: 1) notice it, 2) go find out where the image is
To add to that, there is no 7.8 label with "eap" in it. It looks like 7.6 is the last time Atlassian used eap in a docker image label. The docker hub image label naming is inconsistent.
