Dear Podman maintainers,

We are a group of four computer science Master's students from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands following the course IN4315 Software Architecture ( We chose Podman as the open-source project that we would study, analyse and contribute to.

Over the last 8 weeks, we have published our research in 4 essays, which you can find at On this page, you can also find a list of PRs we made.

It has been a pleasure to work on the contribution to Podman. We enjoyed and learned a lot from this process and we want to thank you for the guidance and assistance you provided us.

We are eager to know what your thoughts are on our research. If you have any thoughts or feedback on our work that you would like to share, we would be excited to hear them. We would also like to inquire if there are any job/internship opportunities available for us in the future.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Feel free to reach out to us through email or GitHub for anything you would like to discuss.

Kind regards,

Krzysztof Baran @kbaran
