Subject Re: workflow surrounding podling LDAP creation
Date Sun, 10 Mar 2019 18:30:59 GMT
Thanks Chris,

It would be great to have a whimsy page that allows an IPMC member to properly automate the
creation of a podling.

Other incubator podling startup steps that could be improved beyond LDAP would be:
- Add the podling to podlings.xml
- Create the podling status file and yml file.
- Anything else?

A second whimsy form could be used to help maintain the three file formats - podlings.xml,
status xml and status yml.
Should this be the podling roster page?

be better automated? I’m not sure we’re going to get to a point where we can automate
the DNS without oversight (due to the substantial cost of an error/outage) but it seems like
we could very easily automate the podling LDAP group creation.
