Starting with openstack ansible hardening

asked 2018-12-11 14:55:55 -0500


I would like to ask for advice where to start with openstack ansible hardening. I know some ansible that isn't really the question. I have questions like this when I look at the GitHub repo: (

  • What is the zuul.d folder?
  • How does testing work - I see the test folder, but don't understand how it is connected to anything
  • What does setup.cfg and .py do?
  • What is the purpose of the library folder

I would love to learn more about the hardening part, please point out a source where I can learn more of it.

Thank you very much!

The project has a documentation site. You can also use the openstack-discuss mailing list; include [ansible-hardening] in the subject. They should have an IRC channel, too, but I currently don’t see it documented.

setup.cfg and are part of the software setup framework of all Python packages, not only in OpenStack.

Zuul is a central part of OpenStack testing and CI.
