Support multiple host distributions with Ansible deployment
I have mixed feeling about containers, when only a single linux disribution family is supported as host OS, especially when it is Ubuntu...
Even though containers add easier management when running/updating the stack, but at least initial setup could be a single monstrous shell script then, why bother with SaltStack/Ansible/etc. at all. And with a single supported Ubuntu version, even containers are almost useless.
As you are moving towards Ansible on develop branch, you could easily add support to multiple distribution (families):
ansible_facts[‘distribution’]could be used when installing/updating packages -
As I am not a staff member, I cannot make a pull request, but I would gladly work on SUSE compatibility, as I run the master branch on OpenSUSE 15.1, and apart from small issues, it worked...
