tool to manage containers and pods

Podman (the POD MANager) is a tool for managing containers and images, volumes mounted into those containers, and pods made from groups of containers.

At a high level, the scope of Podman and libpod is the following:

 * Support for multiple container image formats, including OCI and Docker
 * Full management of those images, including pulling from various sources
   (including trust and verification), creating (built via Containerfile or
   Dockerfile or committed from a container), and pushing to registries and
   other storage backends.
 * Full management of container lifecycle, including creation (both from an
   image and from an exploded root filesystem), running, checkpointing and
   restoring (via CRIU), and removal.
 * Full management of container networking, using Netavark.
 * Support for pods, groups of containers that share resources and are managed
 * Support for running containers and pods without root or other elevated
 * Resource isolation of containers and pods.
 * Support for a Docker-compatible CLI interface, which can both run
   containers locally and on remote systems.
 * No manager daemon, for improved security and lower resource utilization at
 * Support for a REST API providing both a Docker-compatible interface and an
   improved interface exposing advanced Podman functionality.
 * Support for running on Windows and Mac via virtual machines run by podman

Podman is a daemon-less alternative to Docker.
