Thank you for advise. I shall do that to allow migration.

Do you have experience operating local container registry??
I have and I can tell that it is not fun, to say the least. Docker registry
leaks disk space because it does not garbage collect some images...
Neither does it like Buildah/Podman's native image format, although it
can be remedied by building images with "export BUILDAH_FORMAT=docker".

IMHO just saving built images to network share is the best, easiest, most
reliable way of deploying local images. It is the best to avoid Docker
registry whenever possible.

I hope my answer above helps to understand the issue...
