It's a but ugly, but it seems that right now, each of the container
tools embeds a copy of each of the other tools, often in slightly
different versions... so podman build is using its internal version
if buildah that may have different features and bugs than the
version you get when using buildah directly on the command line.
right, that's what i assumed; i'm just saying that that is useful
information to know if, for example, the claim is that "podman uses
buildah for doing its builds," when, in fact, it is using some
(probably stripped down) internal version. definite potential for
confusion there if one is unaware of that.
another example of that coming shortly unless i unconfuse myself
