The image service is seeing some decent use, despite lacking documentation. The primary objectives behind v2 are as follows:
- Make it easier to deploy the image service.
- Make it easier to develop the image service.
- Improve the quality of the primary hosted version.
The current effort to meeting these objectives is rewriting the image service in Golang, moving it away from the PHP/Symfony/Imagine combination today, which will improve the testability of the codebase as well as its performance and speed to develop new features, however, also introduces concerns around vendoring.
