An issue with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Automation with Ansible 9.0 (RH294), lab 4.7

An issue with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Automation with Ansible 9.0 (RH294), lab 4.7, step 7:

Define the restart web service handler.

When triggered, this task should restart the web service defined by the web_service variable, defined in the vars.yml file.

Add a handlers section to the end of the play:

  handlers:
    - name: restart web service
      ansible.builtin.service:
        name: "{{ web_service }}"
        state: restarted

The issue is that it is using the ansible.builtin.firewalld module to configure firewalld. This does work; however, up to now, the module that's been used is ansible.posix.firewalld

If the ansible-navigator doc -m stdout ansible.builtin.firewalld command is used, you'll see that it brings up ANSIBLE.POSIX.FIREWALLD.

Even the Ansible documentation page points to ansible.posix.firewalld when ansible.builtin.firewalld is entered as a search term.

We should be consistent when teaching the students. If ansible.posix.firewalld has been used until now, then ansible.posix.firewalld should continue to be used.

(Perhaps ansible.builtin.firewalld is deprecated?)
