It looks like a fedora runner was already asked for, and the suggestion was to use a container runner or self hosted runner with fedora because they were concerned about the overhead of maintaining another runner. (I suspect) the container solution works for building software but might have issues building other containers. Here is the discussion:

That said, that issue was 2 years ago and it wouldn't hurt to ask again. :) Something something... squeaky wheel...¬† ūüé°

Let me clarify. I think #1 is for Microsoft #2 is probably for the Podman project. My 2c.

Craig,
    I think this is a question for GitHub, as Red Hat doesn't definitively know what GitHub software does. That said, I did a quick look at this [1] and see that "GitHub provides Ubuntu Linux, Microsoft Windows, and macOS runners to run your workflows" so I doubt it. 

So, in a perfect world, I'd file an RFE with GitHub for:
1. Add RHEL/Fedora option as a runner
2. Add actions for Podman

If you file these, this is something I can definitely push with our partner team who works with GitHub.


Best Regards

Hi,

For Docker, there are a number of GitHub Actions with good documentation that can be used
to build containers, and push them to registries using docker build/buildx.

I've started using these Actions:

https://github.com/docker/setup-buildx-action/
https://github.com/docker/docker-login-action/
https://github.com/docker/build-push-action
https://github.com/docker/metadata-action

docs:
https://docs.github.com/en/actions/publishing-packages/publishing-docker-images

These docs and actions are actually quite good when setting up
automation in GitHub for building/pushing containers.

Are there equivalent GitHub Actions for using podman?

I still think that podman/buildah are overall better tools for building containers
than Docker.
