Red Hat Open-Sources Ansible Galaxy Project
Linux giant Red Hat has announced the launch of Ansible Galaxy project which is an open-source code repository. It aims to help developers find, share and reuse their Ansible work. In addition to that, they can create their own Galaxy servers and utilize the native Ansible Galaxy client with their private Galaxy repository. Developers and system administrators can even submit new enhancements and features directly to the Ansible Galaxy codebase.
“Open-source communities are where innovation happens” said Tim Cramer, head of engineering for Ansible at Red Hat. “The Ansible community is thriving, and Red Hat hopes that by open-sourcing the Ansible Galaxy code repository, we will be able to advance open-source automation technology, and specifically Ansible Galaxy, in new and interesting ways.”
