Ansible is a radically simple configuration-management, deployment, task-execution, and multinode orchestration framework.

- Awesome API for creating very powerful distributed scripts
- Be usable as non-root
- The easiest config management system to use, ever.
- ansible-project mailing list
- irc.freenode.net: #ansible
- Releases are named after Van Halen songs.
- The devel branch corresponds to release 0.7, "Panama".
- Various release-X.Y branches exist for previous releases
- All feature work happens on the development branch.
- Major bug fixes will be made to the last release branch only
- See CHANGELOG.md for release notes to track each release.
Contributions to the core and modules are greatly welcome.
- Required Process:
- Submit github pull requests to the "ansible/devel" branch for features
- Fixes for bugs may also be submitted to "ansible/release-X.Y" for the last release
- Make sure "make tests" passes before submitting any requests.
- Bonus points:
- Joining the mailing list
- Fixing bugs instead of sending bug reports.
- Using squash merges
- Updating the "rst/*" files in the docs project and "docs/" manpage content
- Adding more unit tests
- Sending patches to the mailing list directly.
- Sending feature pull requests to the 'release' branch instead of the devel branch
- Sending pull requests to mpdehaan's personal ansible fork.
