no, that is the reason..your imagination is just fine.
I want to automate creation of jenkins Linux slave machines and
the environment. I also want to control the version of Git installed on the
slaves so it will be aligned with all slaves. you can add an installer on
jenkins and have it deployed on the slave as a tar.gz file and than run
with it. whenever you wan to upgrade git version, you create a new pack and
this is done also since we don't run as root on the slave.
make sense to you ?
