After my talk at the OpenStack Summit in Boston about the openstack-ansible-security role, I received plenty of feedback. Thanks to everyone who attended the talk and suffered through my Texas accent. ;)
One of the pieces of feedback is around the name of the role. A common misconception is that the role only works with the OpenStack-Ansible (OSA) project itself since 'openstack-ansible-' is in the name. OSA is definitely not required and it's possible to use the role with any physical or virtual host that may or not be running OpenStack. I've done my best to make that clear whenever it comes up in conversation, but the name still causes some confusion.
The role ended up with its name because it was originally designed to work in tandem with OSA and it grew up in the OSA community. Almost all of the OSA-related roles follow the 'openstack-ansible-<role_name>' syntax and the security role was no exception.
With all of that said, I'm curious to know if it's worth the effort to rename it, and if so, what the suggested names might be. This will obviously affect downstream projects that rely on the openstack-ansible-security role and that's the reason I'm bringing this up on the list.
So my questions are:
1) Should the openstack-ansible-security role be
renamed to alleviate confusion?
2) If it should be renamed, what's your suggestion?
