# s no warranty not only is there no implied warranty for this provider, I actually know for a fact that it is full of bugs and should not be used by any sensible person. # why ruby bindings I chose the ruby bindings and not the tools for 2 reasons: 1. they accept credentials, not certs (harder to pass certs through a provider) 2. extra requirement for Java. I may regret this decision later, the libraries arent as mature as I had hoped @(8^( }-|< # current state This is just a prototype to demonstrate that its possible to use puppet to model dependencies between EC2 instances. Its nowhere near done, it just has some very basic functionality. - ensure that a certain image is present. - ensure that a certain image is absent. ## uniqueness hack EC2 instances dont exactly work with the puppet model. In puppet, we need to be able to determine uniqueness for a resource when its created. in EC2, the unique id for an instance is not available until after the image is created. for this reason, I am using security_group to determine uniqueness. this assumes that each security group can only have one (non-terminated) instance at a time. If you get into a state where this is not true, it may be required to clean up your instances manually to get into this state. Hopefully, EC2 will provide a means in the future for determining how to id machines.
