I think you are confusing two things.
A. How the GitHub platform works
B. What a GitHub Action is
While it is useful to know about A.,
I am more interested in B., and having GitHub Actions implemented for
In my initial e-mail, I posted links to various GitHub Actions which are
in GitHub Repositories. These Actions can be used to do various things like
install docker toolchains, build containers, and push containers to
all using GitHub runner infrastructure.
The actual implementation of these GitHub Actions is done in various
For example, https://github.com/docker/build-push-action
Actions implemented in the https://github.com/docker

so it is unlikely that they would be interested in adding podman support to
If there were a set of equivalent GitHub Actions implemented in the
that worked with podman/buildah, that might be interesting to have.

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 
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.
