Why is Docker latest not on most recent version

I'm a huge fan of the Splunk Docker container. I noticed the 'latest' tag hasn't been updated in a few months and is still Splunk Enterprise 8.2.5 even though Splunk Enterprise 8.2.6 has been released. Then I noticed that even though 'latest' hasn't updated, the image for Splunk Enterprise 8.2.6 has been added to the Docker images list. See splunk/splunk tags.

I'm no Docker expert so I'm guessing I am just missing some obvious thing....

Why is the splunk/splunk:latest not pointing to the latest release of splunk/splunk:8.2.6?

Hi! This is likely just due to an error in our build and publish pipeline when 8.2.6 was released. I'll fix that today so that the image tagged as `latest` is in fact accurate. Appreciate you calling it out and sorry for any confusion.

There's more: The email address listed in the README on the Docker hub is docker-maint@splunk.com

But that address does not exist:

docker-maint@splunk.com
[142.251.2.27]
Remote Server returned '554 5.0.0 <[142.251.2.27] #5.0.0 smtp; 5.1.0 - Unknown address error 550-"5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist.

We are now more than 1 month post CVE-2022-32158 and customers running Splunk 8 on Docker are still waiting for a fix.

The latest docker images are 8.1.10 and 8.2.6 (both from 3 months ago).
No sign of 8.1.10.1 or 8.2.6.1, despite this being a critical vulnerability with a score of 9.0.

I would really appreciate if this could be addressed so we can run the latest in Docker.
