Comment (by desrosj):

 I spent a good chunk of time today looking at our Docker images with
 @mikeschroder and improving WebP support there to ensure we're able to
 develop and test this properly across supported versions of PHP.

 https://github.com/WordPress/wpdev-docker-images/pull/62 is the PR and is
 ready for testing. A quick summary:

 - ImageMagick/Imagick already supported WebP on the PHP 7.1-7.4 images.
 - ImageMagick/Imagick is currently not installed/configured on our 8.0
 image as no official release currently supports PHP 8. However, GD is
 installed and used.
 - The PR adds full support for WebP when using GD on PHP 7.0-8.0.
 - Imagick support cannot easily be added to the 7.0 image because the base
 image used for our image has been EOL'ed, and is stuck compiling with a
 version of ImageMagick that did not contain support for WebP.

 If you'd like to give those images a test spin, the extra eyes would be
 appreciated! There is a `docker-compose.override.y.ml` sample file in the
 PR description you can use to easily test the images. If there's no
 suggestions or feedback, I'll plan on merging this before end of week, and
