    I'm new to Podman and containers and I'm trying to run an Element container. It comes with a Dockerfile so I built it as I would with Docker, but I'm having trouble trying to supply a custom config file. The repo says to "map a volume to /app/config.json" but I can't figure out how to mount a single file into a container, I can only mount an entire folder. I made a volume for this container just called element-vol and I'd like to store the config there if possible. Does anyone know if I can do this? Mounting the entire folder results in Element not loading.
