Don't know where to report a bug with the `podman` package

Hello, everyone! Please help me properly report the following bug:
Installing the podman package, then:

$ podman run hello-world
Error: kernel does not support overlay fs: 'overlay' is not supported over extfs at "/home/cool/.local/share/containers/storage/overlay": backing file system is unsupported for this graph driver

Installing the fuse-overlayfs package, then:

$ podman run hello-world
Resolved "hello-world" as an alias (/etc/containers/registries.conf.d/00-shortnames.conf)
Trying to pull
Getting image source signatures
Copying blob 2db29710123e done

Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
 1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
 2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
 3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
    executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
 4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
    to your terminal.

To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
 $ docker run -it ubuntu bash

As you can see, now that I installed fuse-overlayfs, podman works: finds the desired hello world docker container image and runs it. My suggestion is to add fuse-overlayfs as an optional dependency, suggested description: “rootless filesystem overlay support for linux kernel prior to version 5.11”. I confirm it as needed for 5.10.117-1-MANJARO (I’m using it).

Excuse my large text between ``` marks, I don’t know if it’ll be hidden.

Best regards and thanks

podman is an Arch community package. Please follow the instructions below. You will need to reproduce the issue with Arch to be able to submit a valid bug report. If you mention Manjaro it will be instantly rejected.

EDIT: Arch only supports linux (currently 5.18) and linux-lts (currently 5.15). As @zbe mentioned below, there is no grounds for a bug report.

There are no official Arch kernels <5.15, so you can forget about it.
