After re-reading it, you're right :)

As base images are only re-built when there's a change in the Dockerfile, if
Ubuntu updates the base image or some of the packages we won't get them until we
change the Dockerfile, which is something that doesn't happen very frequently.

Thus, we use scheduled pipelines: every week or so, we force the full re-build
of the base images, that are re-built even if the Dockerfile dind't change.
