Folks - regarding Rancherd - is this still considered a "best practices" method of installing RKE2? The blog has you using https://get.rancher.io. Looking at the GitHub repo - https://github.com/rancher/rancherd - there doesn't appear to be a lot of activity and in fact the get rancher installer doesn't really look simpler than the RKE2 installer at: https://get.rke2.io ... Further, the get rke2 installer supports air-gapped installs where the get rancher installer does not. Finally, the hardcoded v2.5 channel in the get rancher installer installs kubernetes 1.20 which is fairly old at this point. So it almost seems like the get rancher installer is like a "beta" that evolved into get.rke2.io ... Any guidance? Thank you.

Rancherd isn’t really supported anymore, but is used in a slightly different form in Harvester. See the “Warning” at the top: https://github.com/rancher/rancherd#rancherd.
So yeah just use rke2 directly (or Rancher v2.6.x) for installing rke2 🙂
