@matthias.lisin I'm not familiar with the PKG syntax for complex dependencies, so can't suggest anything about it. The only thing I can think about is explaining the situation in a message at the end of the installation process and leave the installation up to the user. Anyway, KinD is quite of a niche software, so I hope users will understand the situation and the need of a container engine in the host.

@miguescri I kinda jumped the gun on podman tbh. Couldn't properly communicate in the PKGBUILD that you need either docker or podman, podman-dnsname and dnsmasq. Not quiet sure myself why I chose that route.

I'll put the podman packages back in optdepends, and also keep docker there. Gonna look a bit ugly because those two packages don't have a common provides to trigger a XOR choice when installing kind. Although podman needs podman-dnsname, and podman-dnsname needs dnsmasq, their depends doesn't reflect that. It will look a bit messy.

I appreciate any suggestions on how to handle this.

Why is now Podman a required dependency and Docker optional?
