./sysutils/ansible, SSH-based configuration management, deployment, and task execution

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.9.4nb2, Package name: ansible-1.9.4nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Ansible is a radically simple model-driven configuration management,
multi-node deployment, and remote task execution system. Ansible works
over SSH and does not require any software or daemons to be installed
on remote nodes. Extension modules can be written in any language and
are transferred to managed machines automatically.

Log message:
Upgrade to version 1.9.4nb1, copied over from pkgsrc-wip.

Upstream changes:
Version 1.9.4, "Dancing In the Street" - Oct 9, 2015:
 * Fixes a bug where yum state=latest would error if there were no
   updates to install.
 * Fixes a bug where yum state=latest did not work with wildcard package names.
 * Fixes a bug in lineinfile relating to escape sequences.
 * Fixes a bug where vars_prompt was not keeping passwords private by default.
 * Fix ansible-galaxy and the hipchat callback plugin to check that
   the host it is contacting matches its TLS Certificate.

Version 1.9.3, "Dancing In the Street" - Sep 3, 2015:
 * Fixes a bug related to keyczar messing up encodings internally,
   resulting in decrypted messages coming out as empty strings.
 * AES Keys generated for use in accelerated mode are now 256-bit
   by default instead of 128.
 * Fix url fetching for SNI with python-2.7.9 or greater. SNI does
   not work with python < 2.7.9. The best workaround is probably
   to use the command module with curl or wget.
 * Fix url fetching to allow tls-1.1 and tls-1.2 if the system's
   openssl library supports those protocols
 * Fix ec2_ami_search module to check TLS Certificates
 * Fix the following extras modules to check TLS Certificates:
 * Fix docker module's parsing of docker-py version for dev checkouts
 * Fix docker module to work with docker server api 1.19
 * Change yum module's state=latest feature to update all packages
   specified in a single transaction. This is the same type of fix
   as was made for yum's state=installed in 1.9.2 and both solves
   the same problems and with the same caveats.
 * Fixed a bug where stdout from a module might be blank when there
   were were non-printable ASCII characters contained within it

Version 1.9.2, "Dancing In the Street" - Jun 26, 2015:
 * Security fixes to check that hostnames match certificates with
   https urls (CVE-2015-3908)
        get_url and uri modules
        url and etcd lookup plugins
 * Security fixes to the zone (Solaris containers), jail (bsd
   containers), and chroot connection plugins. These plugins can
   be used to connect to their respective container types in leiu
   of the standard ssh connection. Prior to this fix being applied
   these connection plugins didn't properly handle symlinks within
   the containers which could lead to files intended to be written
   to or read from the container being written to or read from the
   host system instead. (CVE pending)
 * Fixed a bug in the service module where init scripts were being
   incorrectly used instead of upstart/systemd.
 * Fixed a bug where sudo/su settings were not inherited from
   ansible.cfg correctly.
 * Fixed a bug in the rds module where a traceback may occur due
   to an unbound variable.
 * Fixed a bug where certain remote file systems where the SELinux
   context was not being properly set.
 * Re-enabled several windows modules which had been partially
   merged (via action plugins):
 * Fix bug using with_sequence and a count that is zero. Also allows
   counting backwards isntead of forwards
 * Fix get_url module bug preventing use of custom ports with https urls
 * Fix bug disabling repositories in the yum module.
 * Fix giving yum module a url to install a package from on RHEL/CENTOS5
 * Fix bug in dnf module preventing it from working when yum-utils
   was not already installed

Version 1.9.1, "Dancing In the Street" - Apr 27, 2015:
 * Fixed a bug related to Kerberos auth when using winrm with a domain account.
 * Fixing several bugs in the s3 module.
 * Fixed a bug with upstart service detection in the service module.
 * Fixed several bugs with the user module when used on OSX.
 * Fixed unicode handling in some module situations (assert and
   shell/command execution).
 * Fixed a bug in redhat_subscription when using the activationkey parameter.
 * Fixed a traceback in the gce module on EL6 distros when multiple
   pycrypto installations are available.
 * Added support for PostgreSQL 9.4 in rds_param_group
 * Several other minor fixes.

Version 1.9, "Dancing In the Street" - Mar 25, 2015:
Major changes:
 * Added kerberos support to winrm connection plugin.
 * Tags rehaul: added 'all', 'always', 'untagged' and 'tagged'
   special tags and normalized tag resolution. Added tag information
   to --list-tasks and new --list-tags option.
 * Privilege Escalation generalization, new 'Become' system and
   variables now will handle existing and new methods. Sudo and
   su have been kept for backwards compatibility. New methods
   pbrun and pfexec in 'alpha' state, planned adding 'runas' for
   winrm connection plugin.
 * Improved ssh connection error reporting, now you get back the
   specific message from ssh.
 * Added facility to document task module return values for
   registered vars, both for ansible-doc and the docsite. Documented
   copy, stats and acl modules, the rest must be updated individually
   (we will start doing so incrementally).
 * Optimize the plugin loader to cache available plugins much more
   efficiently. For some use cases this can lead to dramatic
   improvements in startup time.
 * Overhaul of the checksum system, now supports more systems and
   more cases more reliably and uniformly.
 * Fix skipped tasks to not display their parameters if no_log is specified.
 * Many fixes to unicode support, standarized functions to make
   it easier to add to input/output boundaries.
 * Added travis integration to github for basic tests, this should
   speed up ticket triage and merging.
 * environment: directive now can also be applied to play and is
   inhertited by tasks, which can still override it.
 * expanded facts and OS/distribution support for existing facts
   and improved performance with pypy.
 * new 'wantlist' option to lookups allows for selecting a list
   typed variable vs a comma delimited string as the return.
 * the shared module code for file backups now uses a timestamp
   resolution of seconds (previouslly minutes).
 * allow for empty inventories, this is now a warning and not an
   error (for those using localhost and cloud modules).
 * sped up YAML parsing in ansible by up to 25% by switching to
   CParser loader.
New Modules:
 * cryptab: manages linux encrypted block devices
 * gce_img: for utilizing GCE image resources
 * gluster_volume: manage glusterfs volumes

New Filters:
 * ternary: allows for trueval/falseval assignment dependent on conditional
 * cartesian: returns the Cartesian product of 2 lists
 * to_uuid: given a string it will return an ansible domain specific UUID
 * checksum: uses the ansible internal checksum to return a hash from a string
 * hash: get a hash from a string (md5, sha1, etc)
 * password_hash: get a hash form as string that can be used as a
   password in the user module (and others)
 * A whole set of ip/network manipulation filters:

   not pass value for b (not even an empty value) if c was not set.
 * developers: 'baby JSON' in module responses, originally intended
   for writing modules in bash, is removed as a feature to simplify

 * Security fix to disallow specifying 'args:' as a string, which
   could allow the insertion of extra module parameters through
