As a Silverblue user I have found myself depending on Toolbox containers a lot of late - and I have also busted some. So I have started using a workflow to backup/restore and move these containers. Not sure if documentation on this kind of thing belongs in the magazine or is better in a discussion post? Also not sure of I am using the optimal method (definitely not claiming expertise)- but it does work. I have searched around for Toolbox specific information on creating backups and have not been able to find much information at all - which can be frustrating when you break them as often as I do.
The article would discuss briefly what Toolboxes are, some examples of when they can be handy and then explore using a sequence of toolbox and Podman commands to first commit and then save a Toolbox to an container image in an archive file. Followed by restoring the image and then creating a Toolbox container from it on the same or another machine.

The footer on every Fedora Magazine page states:
The opinions expressed on this website are those of each author, not of the author’s employer or of Red Hat. …
Given the above, I would think Fedora Magazine would be a reasonable place for the sort of how to that you describe.
Thanks & apologies, I just read the page describing the process for article creation and realized that I didn’t use the proposal format to describe what I want to write - should I go ahead and do that now?
That’s alright. Your proposal has received the votes that it needs to proceed. The next step is to get a card created for you in Taiga. Have you signed in on the system yet? I think there is a bit of back and forth needed to get a new account setup in Taiga – you create the account, then I can grant it access to add content to the system. I haven’t done this part of the process before, so bear with me while I figure this out.
