I'm interested in opening a conversation about whether we can extend the
docker_image
target to support non-Docker image builders such as Podman. I have written a plugin which provides an
oci_image
target, delegating to Podman under the covers, by basically just mercilessly extending from a handful of the Pants standard docker backend classes. But I'm wondering if there might be more robust approaches which could be contributed back to Pants core -- for example, having
pants.toml
able to specify which binary should be used in place of
docker
(noting this would only work for those cases in which a given container builder is compatible with the
docker
command-line, and indeed with `Dockerfile`s, like
podman
is). What's the best forum to have that conversation -- should I open an issue?

Here, an issue,or GH discussion are all fine places. Some related "options for building docker images" tickets at: https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/issues/15199 https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/issues/14395
