Ansible 2.10 will signal a very significant change in the way Ansible modules/plugins/filters/etc. are maintained through the magic of Collections.

It may be worth adding an entire chapter, or if not, at least treating Collections in the same area as Roles. Some of the important aspects to cover include:

  • How Collections are built (structure, what is in them)
  • How to acquire and use Collections in your playbooks (e.g. requirements, difference between roles/collections, etc.)
  • The difference between Automation Hub and Ansible Galaxy
  • How to develop and/or contribute Collections to the community
  • When you would choose to distribute content as a role vs a collection on Galaxy

Getting very close on this... at least the preliminary bit of the chapter is done, and I have content ready for tomorrow's livestream (#285).

Finally picking this back up after a month hiatus. Ended up in the hospital for a short time and that kinda put a pause on things post-Ansible-101-series!

Hoping to get this chapter out within a week.

Book content is written, I'm going through a revision before I'll publish the new chapter 7. I will also be taking a look at a few other issues in the queue prior to publishing the new revision, since it has a big structural change.
