There are booting issues with at least the Arch-based initrd, being part of the -image package, hence not worth submitting until fixed.

Why is the kata-containers-image related stuff commented out in pkgbuild?

As a person not associated with the project, at this point I have no idea. I'll chalk it up to the same uncertainty as with the release timing.

Thanks for linking to the documentation, it'll probably need a bit of expanding for Podman, as well, but looks like a good starting point.

Thanks for your take on this. I'm also curious: Do you happen to know whether kata packaging is going to be drastically different for version 2 or whether it'll be mostly the same?

Basically, would it be useful/wise to even officially package kata 1?

About the wiki page: Thanks! That'd be a good first step for making kata on Arch quite a bit more approachable. I suppose it could borrow a lot from

If Kata's tag history is any guidance, the closest one can get to measurable anticipation of a stable release is about 2 weeks to a month after upstream posts an RC and since there is none for 2.0, nobody knows for sure.

The other thing is Kata's (optional from a package maintenance standpoint) support for other hypervisors - as of the time of writing, Firecracker and Cloud-Hypervisor, whose adoption would provide a more complete scope of software's possibilities.

As for the Wiki article - that's largely dependent on the time budget I'll end up having left and the time frame it'd have to fit in, but I'll give it a shot.

I'm potentially interested in maintaining this set of packages in [community] as I think this could be pretty cool for infra stuff. However, I'm curious as to whether we should wait for kata 2? Also, would you be interested in writing a Kata Containers ArchWiki article perhaps?

Thanks psYchotic.

@kshlm yup, just drop in kata = ["/usr/bin/kata-runtime"] under the [runtimes] section in /etc/containers/libpod.conf (example file in /usr/share/containers/libpod.conf), run podman -ti --runtime=kata alpine:edge /bin/sh and it Just Works™.
