Podman
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

  • Name of the software: Podman
  • Project/product Homepage: https://podman.io/
  • Why we should include this into the repository, i.e. what does it do that the alternatives do not?
    • Libpod provides a library for applications looking to use the Container Pod concept, popularized by Kubernetes.
    • Libpod also contains the Pod Manager tool (Podman). Podman manages pods, containers, container images, and container volumes.
    • Podman can be easily run as a normal user, without requiring a setuid binary.
      • When run without root, Podman containers use user namespaces to set root in the container to the user running Podman.
      • Rootless Podman runs locked-down containers with no privileges that the user running the container does not have.
    • Support for a Docker-compatible CLI interface through Podman.
  • Is it open source? Yes
  • If it is open source, please provide a link to the most up to date, versioned source tarball/zipfile. master.zip links will not be accepted.
  • If there are no upstream releases but the inclusion policy is otherwise met, please provide a link to the source repository (i.e. GitHub)

Goes hand in hand with Buildah T8201

I'm willing to package this myself if you accept it for inclusion because i will use this software.

Nice. At the moment I use containerd which does kind of the same but podman looks more polished

I did a preliminary work on packaging this but there is still a ways to go before i publish Diff. There is few missing dependencies that also need to be packaged separately so i will do those too.
