been doing a lot of reading/working with Docker's new builder, buildkit. the docs are "sparse," to put it politely.

there is part of me that thinks we need throw docker (and containerd) out the window and start from scratch. sometimes you just need a fresh start to not get bogged down by all the baggage of the past.

but that's a lot of work. :(

@tjb I remember hearing about an alternative called podman a couple years ago. I wonder how that project is doing..

@benjaminpaikjones yeah, i've been meaning to look at podman. maybe i'll make some time in the next couple weeks to look at the code. 🤔

@tjb Nix is another option. If you are focused on reproducible builds, it shoukd itch your scratch. Not a full overlap in use case though with docker.
