I’ve whined multiple times about configuration management software and ideas. I’ve posted some musings on what I’d like to see and grumbled that none of the existing solutions can scale out to what I see as my end goal. Right now, myself and others at work use their SCM of choice, and bad script, a shared filesystem or HTTPS source, and a cron job to manage a specific service. That sounds like something reasonable. Lets have just one bad script. Let’s aim it at supporting 1 to a handful of servers that provide a specific service.
Today’s coding gives us a horridly incomplete version of “MetaMorph.“ Some code, some layout and design docs. See the GitWeb or clone via:
