> Hi all,

> The goal of this proposed SIG is to provide vendor-independent, nicely
> written packages for automation tools.
> Targeted automation tools include Puppet, Chef, Ansible... Some of those
> tools come in a so-called all-in-one package, with everything built-in
> in some vendor-defined dependencies. I do think that an alternative for

> on those packages or patch one particular dependencies to do so.
> It would also do its best to re-use system dependencies as much as
> possible (e.g openssl).
> That SIG will probably be a source of interests for other SIG that could
> use this work to deploy their work based on community packages. It could
> optionally depend on some Softwares Collections if needed.
> My personal interest is to target Puppet 4 on ContOS 7, and that would
> be the first objective, but this SIG is open to any Open-Source
> Configuration Management tool.

(just commenting the paragraph above)
Fedora Puppet4 package should build unchanged on CBS, if there are any changes
required, patches are welcome.
If it gets imported in CBS, I'd like to keep packaging consistent on
all related platforms.
