Is there (will there be) any concept in rolekit of mulitple instances
a role on a server?
I know that this certainly doesn't apply to some services like IPA
But for others, such as databases it may be a limitation later on.
I don’t think we need it; roles always can support multiple server instances within a
single role, and I guess this would be the right thing to do for non-specialist admins (in
particular this gives the _role implementation_ the option to choose for the user whether
to implement multiple instances as multiple configurations within a process, multiple
processes within a data store, or completely separate data and configuration instances).
Exposing multiple instances within a role does have limitations (what is the state of a
role in which 90 instances run successfully and 1 has crashed?), but it seems to me that
users running into these instances would usually be those running a very large number of
instances (e.g. hosting them for customers as a business), i.e. specialist cases which are
not the primary taret of Fedora Server.
