[CentOS-devel] Configuration Management SIG status and new pkg proposal : ARA (Ansible Run Analysis)

While technically speaking a ConfigManagement SIG was approved a long
time ago
(https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/ConfigManagementSIG) it
seems that nothing was built at all, and that initial people probably
lost interest in that idea (?)

The interesting part is that other SIGs that were relying on such config
management tools (like puppet or ansible) built it themselves in their
own tags :
- puppet : https://cbs.centos.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=390
- ansible : https://cbs.centos.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=1947

I was myself just the "sponsor" for other community people to join and
take care of the pkgs they were interested into, but suddenly I was
myself busy rebuilding such tools, and I'd even have a new one as a
proposal : ARA

ARA (Ansible Run Analysis) is a tool written under the openstack
umbrella, and written/maintained by dmsimard (Cloud SIG member)
For people not aware of it, it's a callback plugin for ansible that let
you store (and so browse) your ansible logs through webui (and it stores
those reports into a DB)

I initially thought about building that in the infrastructure7-el7
target, but maybe some other people would be interested into using those
as pkgs directly in a repo on mirror.centos.org

Initially the author wanted to have it in Epel7, but due to two pkgs
version that are in [base] (and so that will not be overwritten by
Epel), that doesn't seem possible. So my proposal would be to rebuild
what's needed through configmgmt SIG , including the two packages
(pytest and python-jinja2)

For people interested in the ARA in Epel7 story, here is the pkg review :
