I took a quick look at the github repo, it looked like a lot of code/config. My question is will it still work in a year or two? If not are you ready to fix the supporting code in the repo?  

I have never worked in an environment where provisioning was a big issue and certainly not the bulk of workload. I feel like many of us are adopting a provisioning mindset because the folks designing tools like puppet, chef and ansible are heavy users of provisioning and higher ups are pushing “automation”. If provisioning was an issue I would probably just build out an image which can quickly be replicated or find some other solution which off the top of my head I can think of a few.  

Just my 2 cents. Been here for many years but like a bunch of you just lurk these days. No better list in the world IMHO.

as appealing as ansible sounds (at least to investigate), i think i'll run with puppet for now since I'm new here and it's what everyone uses. thanks for all the input!
