Automating Docker container base image updates with Watchtower

The vast majority of Dockerfiles start from a parent image (a base image), which are part of our docker containers, the base from where our projects are built. These base images (normally) are being updated frequently, and we need to follow the updates to not keep our project outdated. Watchtower help us with this frequent updates, managing them seamlessly for our projects.
