If this has been answered somewhere before, please point me to it..

RE: modules v/s rpms, podman, buildah and their dependencies are standalone
rpms in Fedora while in RHEL they are in the 'container-tools' module.

With CentOS Stream being midstream, would these packages be present in a module
to be more like RHEL or as standalone rpms like in Fedora?

FWIW, I try to ensure that the latest release branch of all my Fedora
packages is buildable on CBS, so I'm really glad to see this midstream approach.
