Re: [Spacewalk-list] Spacewalk, Foreman, and Puppet ?



Thanks for the clarification.  I was going off of this: <http://www.redhat.com/summit/2011/presentations/summit/whats_next/thursday/summit-2011.warner_sanders_t_1400_future_of_satellite-v5.pdf>

I went back and re-read it slower and saw the references to CloudForms.

I have seen multiple references to combining puppet and cobbler.  When I saw the referenced document describe Foreman as "Cobbler on steroids", I made my own conclusions.
