Podman has been in the main repositories of Ubuntu since 20.10 (and
Debian 11). I think that is a clear commitment from the community
to support Podman (and Buildah) as best as we can.
If users require enterprise-level support and stability, I would
always recommend using an enterprise distribution such as RHEL.
When it comes to community distributions, I think that Fedora has
the advantage that it is backed by Red Hat, and as Chris has
mentioned earlier, there is a lot of QA going on and a considerable
amount of engineering power and expertise behind.
But we really don't make a difference upstream; we treat all issues
the same, independent if they happen on Ubuntu or Fedora or Arch.
The vast majority of issues are distribution independent in any case
and that, in fact, is what I consider the beauty of open source: all
benefit by working together.
That being said, I would totally recommend using Podman on Ubuntu.
If there is a bug, we'll fix it upstream and then it's up to the
maintainers of the individual distributions to either backport or
jump to the next release of Podman.
great, that makes me cautiously optimistic. this will probably wait
until deadlines ease up in late december, and i dive into setting all
this up on ubuntu 21.10. there will probably be questions.
