Hi group,

Over a period of time, I have been thinking of how to get more involved in FI-Apprentice and with FI. It seems that my skills fall short even on the easy tickets. :) Maybe I am the only person who doesn't know these technologies. I have no idea of Puppet/Ansible or anything that is so much discussed around.

I had a very brief discussion with Kevin some time ago and I had this idea that perhaps we could have a few servers where in we can "learn" a few of the technologies that are bring used by Fedora and then feel more comfortable to contribute.

At that time, I brought out the topic of maybe we can rent a few servers from Digital Ocean/GoDaddy etc. Turns out they are quite heavy on my budget. :)

Is it possible for Fedora to let a few servers dedicated for training ? Moreover, is there some one like me who would like to join me learn so that the contributions to FA/FI-Apprentice group could be more satisfactory ?

Please guide and sincere apologies to any and all who think this mail fall in "junk". It is never my intention to disturb you.

Best regards,

You can run puppet and ansible on a local machine without problems! there is no need for a server!

Just install it, run it, set it up, start configuring and developing for your CMS.

Further, I see security issues in allowing anyone to do whatever on FI machines. There are development units for actual testing, but still. The less access the merrier.
