INTRODUCTION:
-------------

Unigroup's May 2013 meeting will discuss Configuration Management
Systems, one of the hot topics in Systems Administration in recent
years.  We hope to compare and discuss some of the major
Open-Source configuration tools such as: bcfg2, cfengine, chef
and puppet.

Our speaker Sam Kottler, is a member of The Foreman Project,
and as such, we hope to also talk about Foreman, a "complete
life-cycle management tool for physical and virtual servers",
which can provision on bare-metal, and public or private clouds.
Sam recently presented The Foreman at the LOPSA-EAST 2013
Systems Administration Conference.

Stay tuned for further meeting details...
