In the context of the email thread, no one in their sane mind will configure Amazon/Heroku/etc. VMs manually. They will use ansible/puppet/chef/etc. to install packages and to start services after they are installed and configured. I honestly don't see what the big deal is. Most of the time you will need to configure your apache server before you can start it. -- Rui Paulo _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
