My thinking when choosing dependencies was:

- podman has significant performance benefits when running as root
- the podman package dependencies should be as minimal as possible, in
particular on system where podman is running as root.

I do sympathize with the cryptic error message. May I ask you to forward
your suggestion on wording directly to upstream at
https://github.com/containers/podman/issues ?

Please do let me know the  upstream bug number and your thoughts on this.
