Use a public docker image in AWS ECS

Amazon Web Services carefully explain how to use a private docker image in ECS, the Amazon container service. But fails to mention what repository URL to use for a dockerhub public repository. The answer is … none at all. Just the same as the docker CLI, if you specify just namespace/imagename for a container image, ECS will pull it from dockerhub.
