Talk:Saltstack

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Naming issues here. Firstly, the page name "Saltstack" would be more correct as "SaltStack".

But it probably shouldn't be either of these at all: as I understand it, the FOSS version is called "Salt" (and also "Salt Open"), whilst the paid-for version, with more features, is "SaltStack Enterprise", often called just "SaltStack". The Arch package salt presumably delivers Salt, not Saltstack Enterprise.

(Just to close off the round-up of names, "SaltStack, Inc" is the name of the company, and "SaltStack SecOps" appears to be the name of a separate product.)

So this Wiki page ought to be renamed back to "Salt". It would probably benefit from including passing references to the terms "Salt Open", "SaltStack Enterprise" and "Saltstack, Inc".

The page body doesn't contain any occurrences of "Saltstack" or "SaltStack", but it does contain one of "Salt Stack", in a section title, and this ought to be amended to "Salt" as well.

Any objections to all the above?

I think the name "Salt Open" be correct.This is how it is marked on github. --gyoom (talk) 05:41, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

test.sls example could be gnu-netcat for archlinux minions

Having both master and minion on arch I was trying the test state, there is no netcat pkg (salt does not say so so obviously), might be better to change it to gnu-netcat for newcomers

gnu-netcat:
 pkg.installed: []
