It's not pretty, but it gives a feedback every 30 seconds.

   - name: Pause
     with_sequence: start=40 end=0 stride=-1

That works. But this is indeed not that pretty. Is there a way to get rid
of the prompt?


I think I might in stead create a loop that just executes "sleep 30"...

This is a solution that looks nice, the downside is it does 40 includes and creates 40 dummy tasks.

- name: "{{ item | int / 2 }} minutes left"
  command: sleep 30
  changed_when: false

In the playbook:

  - include: pause.yml
    with_sequence: start=40 end=1 stride=-1
