BSD Working Group

The BSD Working Group collaborates on BSD and BSD-related technologies (incl. DragonFly, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, TrueOS, FreeNAS, OPNSense, pfSense) in Ansible.


  • BSD works out of the box with most of the standard Unix modules.
  • We formed a Working Group to improve the BSD-specific support in Ansible.
  • We have a BSD pinboard, subscribe to it to stay informed!
