Kanboard via Podman

This was a virtual meeting to have a quick talk about rootless containers and do what should be a relatively simple exercise in using podman in a rootless setting and running a kanboard container.

Needless to say, it went sideways a bit, but it was a fun exercise in an environment where making mistakes are just that, mistakes. We made it most of the way through the exercise, but did not get to the point of having the user level systemd manage the container. Maybe next time.

This was the first meeting for a couple of people, and the first interactive technical one in quite some time, so a few rough spots were to be expected. At least the jitsi conference system was solid and the shared screens were clear and readable.

We will probably revisit this again with a somewhat more involved exercise and the assumption that we all have working environments for it. My own environment failed to recover after I rebooted it to check that everything was working as expected. It seems that the VM lost part of the root disk, which is worrisome. Of course, it was a brand new VM created for this purpose, so it is possible I forgot a step when configuring it and as a result it never got properly saved. That is a first for me, so it needs to be rebuilt and tested. Maybe a future talk on building for KVM or Proxmox.
