Servers: puppet1 /

Purpose: provide easy setup of new planet groups on

After you get a request for a new planet group you just need to do the following:

The Setup

  1. on puppet1 cp -a configs/system/planet/grouptmpl configs/system/planet/newgroupname
  2. cd to the new directory
  3. run perl -pi -e "s/%%groupname/newgroupname/" fpbuilder.conf base_config planet-group.cron templates/* replacing newgroupname with the groupname you want
  4. git add the whole dir
  5. edit manifests/services/planet.pp
  6. copy and paste everything from begging to end of the design team group
  7. modify what you copied replacing design with the new group name
  8. save it
  9. check everything in
  10. run puppet on planet and check if it works


Tell the requester to then copy their current .planet file to .planet.newgroupname. For example with the design team:

cp ~/.planet ~/

This will then show up on the new feed -
