Autoware CI / Gitlab

Just curious - is there a specific reason that the current .gitlab-ci.yml file in the Autoware repo (https://github.com/autowarefoundation/autoware/blob/master/.gitlab-ci.yml) uses the Docker image ubuntu:xenial and installs ROS and all dependencies instead of using the official ROS Docker images (https://hub.docker.com/_/ros/) which are built using the previous as a base? This would save a ton of time in the build process…

Probably just an overlook by @sgermanserrano ?

In AutowareAuto for ros2 we also use official ROS Docker images https://gitlab.com/AutowareAuto/AutowareAuto/blob/master/tools/ade_image/Dockerfile#L1

@JWhitleyWork @Dejan_Pangercic it was just a direct port of what was for Travis before, I’m currently working on updating it to use the official ros kinetic image as we do with the new Dockerfiles
