Images are now flattened into a single layer there by reducing the size of the images and the time taken for the images to be pulled and uncompressed. This helps in reuse of the same layers. Since, Tanzu Application Catalog produces up-to-date container images using the latest fixed minimal dependencies, the possibilities to reuse any of those layers are minimal.
