So iiuc the problem correctly podman 1.6.4 is needed to fix some race
issues, the corresponding bug
https://bugs.launchpad.net/tripleo/+bug/1856324 mainly referred
CentOS7 jobs/users as most of the Upstream work/development around
CentOS7 but considering efforts around CentOS8 i will try to put info
related to both wrt RDO.
With respect to CentOS8:-
So plan for master is to move to CentOS8, but CentOS8 is still not
completely ready, it's WIP. Current status and issues can be found
with . wrt podman version, as soon as job/users start consuming
CentOS8, podman version whatever shipped with it will be available,
most likely it will be podman-1.4.2-5 looking at Stream content ,
which might be updated with future updates/releases. I guess similar
race issue might be hitting in Train as well, so with respect to
Train, there is also plan to add CentOS8 support for Train in addition
to CentOS7 as a follow up/parallel to master efforts.
Now with respect to CentOS7:-
Current podman version we have in RDO is 1.5.1-3 for both train and
master. There was an attempt  in past from @Emilien Macchi to
update podman to 1.6.1 in RDO but there were some issues running on
CentOS7 and we didn't hear much from container Team on how to move
forward, we can attempt again to see if > 1.6.1 is working which
mostly depends on Container Teams plan for podman and CentOS7.
In RDO we use the builds done by Container Team and last successful
build on CBS is 1.6.2.
