Vlad the Deployer
    by the Ruby Hit Squad
    http://rubyhitsquad.com/
    http://rubyforge.org/projects/hitsquad/

== DESCRIPTION:

Vlad the Deployer is pragmatic application deployment automation,
without mercy. Much like Capistrano, but with 1/10th the
complexity. Vlad integrates seamlessly with Rake, and uses familiar
and standard tools like ssh and rsync.

Impale your application on the heartless spike of the Deployer.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Full deployment automation stack.
* Turnkey deployment for mongrel+apache+svn.
* Supports single server deployment with just 3 variables defined.
* Built on rake. Easy. Engine is small.
* Very few dependencies. All simple.
* Uses ssh with your ssh settings already in place.
* Uses rsync for efficient transfers.
* Run remote commands on one or more servers.
* Mix and match local and remote tasks.
* Compatible with all of your tab completion shell script rake-tastic goodness.
* Ships with tests that actually pass in 0.028 seconds!
* Does NOT support Windows right now (we think). Coming soon in 1.2.

== SYNOPSIS:

    % rake vlad:setup   # first time only
    % rake vlad:update
    % rake vlad:migrate # optional
    % rake vlad:start

== REQUIREMENTS:

* Rake
* Hoe
* Rubyforge
* open4

== INSTALL:

* sudo gem install -y vlad

== SPECIAL THANKS:

* First, of course, to Capistrano. For coming up with the idea and
  providing a lot of meat for the recipes.
* Scott Baron for coming up with one of the best project names evar.
* Bradley Taylor for giving us permission to use RailsMachine recipes sans-LGPL.
