May be a dumb question...
If we're excluding DNF, RPM, etc. for a slimmer base image during
how are we describing the best practices for build? Is the intention
you should always be pulling in a separate tool container to assist
the build process?

I have no problem removing dnf, but removing rpm is going to far. For
now we still need rpm for looking at the contents of a container.
While external rpm would probably work, I don't think we are redy for
this, nor is the benefit enough.
