Yes, I was at the Ohio LinuxFest this weekend!
Even though I did attend several presentations on Saturday. My day was mostly taken up with something else…
I built rpm packages for salt!
If you aren’t sure what salt is, check out their site and read the authors blog. Essentially, salt makes it easy to run a set of commands on multiple machines all at the same time, returning results quickly and asynchronously.
If you are interested in trying out salt on your system(s) and run Fedora, RHEL, CentOS, etc. feel free to try out the rpms. I’ve currently got a review request on bugzilla as well if anyone is interested in providing a review.
