Re: [Libguestfs] question about support for almalinux or centOS stream images? [EXTERNAL]

Hi Rich,
thanks for the confirmation.  I am looking into see how the cached images that are downloaded initially are made, e.g. $HOME/.cache/virt-builder/fedora-33.x86_64.2.  I would like build one so that I can test out alma linux.  Is this a dd image?  Looks like:

$ parted fedora-33.x86_64.2
GNU Parted 3.2
Using /home/pb/.cache/virt-builder/fedora-33.x86_64.2
Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands.

I'm not sure to what extent CentOS Stream will differ from RHEL in reality, but generally yes to both, although I'll probably wait a while to see if they have momentum.  It shouldn't be too hard, basically searching down all existing references to CentOS and Scientific Linux in the code and adding the new distro(s) alongside.
I don't expect any special support beyond that should be needed.
