skopeo is a command line utility that performs various operations on container images and image repositories. It doesn't require a user to be root to do most of its operations nor does it require a daemon to be running. It's a useful part of a CI pipeline; we've used it to copy images from one registry to another as we promote the images. It's better than doing a pull and a push as we don't need to store the images locally. It's not a new tool, but it's useful enough and underutilized that we felt it's worth calling it out.
