Add foreman as deployment tool

Latest response

Together with Puppet, Foreman makes a good deployment tool. It would be nice if we could install it out of the box.


I did notice that Foreman is part of the cloud offerening by Red Hat so it shouldn't be that much extra work.




Foreman is a key component of the Katello/SystemEngine replacement for Satellite.  We're using it in our re-enginered deployment of Puppet for this very reason.


Getting it from EPEL doesn't bother us for the moment.  By the time RHEL 7 comes around I can't see it not being available as an official package.  It would, however, be a bit rough of Red Hat if it were only included in the SystemEngine channel for example.
