The roles stuff? I have, though I'm not sure if I just failing to get it or something but I don't see anything there that looks especially useful to a server administrator.

Other than pulling in a group of packages it's not really clear to me what a role does for me,

If you are _already_ administering an existing setup, or have a custom automated deployment of a service, probably not much.  When you need to deploy a new service, the roles should save you work because a lot of the "custom" work is really common to most deployments and shouldn't need to be custom; or if you were new to Linux system administration, the roles should simplify everything (but not make it impossible to deal with the details).
