Hi All!
Thanks for the feedback!

I'll remove xattr from the requirements in my change set.
Currently i'm working on a workaround to execute 'getfattr' instead of the
xattr api call. We can asure getfattr is available via package dependencies
of our client who has to be installed either way.

I'm also checking out your proposal in parallel, i cannot find any
documentation about the 'configuration management manifests', do you mean
the puppet manifests? Otherwise, could somebody please give me a pointer to
their documentation, etc.?

Best regards
