Docker DOES pull in commit layers. So you can specify layers. Like a GIt layer onto of a python layer,   ontop of a ubuntu layer etc. So docker can check which layers changed and just update those - so no need for huge downloads everytime IF you specify docker layer dependencies correctly.

You usually do this in your docker file with “from ubuntu:” for “from python3”
You can also build your own layers etc…
