Docker Image Specification v1.

This directory contains documents about Docker Image Specification v1.X.

The v1 file layout and manifests are no longer used in Moby and Docker, except in docker save and docker load.

However, v1 Image JSON (application/vnd.docker.container.image.v1+json) has been still widely used and officially adopted in V2 manifest and in OCI Image Format Specification.
