Thoughts on using ansible for deployment/documentation
Using ansible can make it easy to migrate the service to a new server or if we have to restore from backup. This provides a well documented a standard way of describing the system configuration. Though keeping the config files directly in git may be easier for people to contribute (git knowledge vs ansible - there is a learning curve for ansible, but value for that skill as well). What do you think?

Should we use ansible for server configuration? Closed Thu 9 Nov 2023 8:00PM
What is the decision you need to make?
Should we use ansible to describe our server configuration? Some of us in the team already have some experience with ansible and it is widely used.
Why is this important?
We need a way to document the configuration choices we make so its easier for new volunteers joining the team to get started quickly.
What are you asking people to do?
Share your opinion. Alternatives could be just documenting it on wiki or using a shell script.
For this proposal to pass, we need the majority of members to vote Agree.
If you Disagree, say why and what needs to change for you to Agree.
