Difference between Docker-Images

What is the difference between the Images used in the documentation:
latestghcr.io/home-assistant/home-assistant:stable
and the one available on docker hub:
homeassistant/home-assistant:stable?

Are they both official, supported Images?

The documentation was updated last year, but the pr for it doesn’t really explain why fully.

Seems there are advantages to ghcr over docker, i suppose because its “straight from the source” vs the extra step needed to move the image out to the docker hub, but personally I still just use the docker hub image. They, in theory, should match. I suppose ghcr could be updated quicker and slightly before the docker hub image on occasion.

This seems to explain benefits, although since the article is on the github site, it’s opinion could be biased.
