New issue by Animeshz on void-packages repository

https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages/issues/37638

Description:
### Package name

ignite

### Package homepage

https://github.com/weaveworks/ignite

### Description

Weave Ignite is an open source Virtual Machine (VM) manager with a container UX and built-in GitOps management.

It combines [Firecracker MicroVMs](https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2018/11/firecracker-lightweight-virtualization-for-serverless-computing/) with Docker / [OCI images](https://github.com/opencontainers/image-spec) to unify containers and VMs.

That is, kind of a hybrid instance of docker and firecracker-microvm where control is exactly like docker (build process and run process) yet there can be a kernel and init at runtime just like any other VM, you can access hardware devices, iptables and many more. Firecracker also provides [jailer](https://github.com/firecracker-microvm/firecracker/blob/main/docs/jailer.md) which deals with adding restrictions and limiting resources to the vm. The MicroVM also boots up in [quater of a second](https://gist.github.com/sameo/0647d6aaa36e73e6b536b51c29db1ead).

### Does the requested package meet the quality requirements?

System

### Is the requested package released?

Yes
