Examples of existing repositories which I suspect won't be copied to
Actually, that one has been in the osops repo for a few months. Mike Dorman put it there.
But, to be fair, I am also worried about fire and forget contributions.
But I think most of us are solving the same problems and collectively burning time addressing the same issues. I would like to see some collaboration between operators on how builds/maintains/upgrades/monitors their environments. I know the tool chains wont match up, however most of us are smart enough to take what other people have done and either reverse engineer it or use it as a starting point to make something similar work in our environment. Then hopefully contribute those changes back to the community. Be that a shell script to do some sort of cleanup, a configuration for stats.d/graphite that gives insight into whats going on in openstack, or a ansible playbook to help automate certain routine tasks.
Either way as a formal project or just an mailing list and repo to contribute stuff to, I welcome any increase in sharing of code/tools sets/scripts/configs between operators so that we all can at least have a starting point to try and solve the problems that we face as cloud operators. I personally am rooting for an operator openstack project.
