Re: Handing off my duties

We're sorry to see Jimmy go for sure.  And in the interests of contacting me, I am camped out on #debian-cloud (erjohnso) but mostly leave my nick set to /away, or email of course works too.

Also, Hi Jose,

Glad to hear you've had a good experience with GCE. Do please feel free to reach out anytime with any feedback or questions.

Regarding click-to-deploy, currently there is not an easy way for you to do this on your own. The good news is that it's evolving quickly and transitioning to https://cloud.google.com/deployment-manager/overview.  As you'll see, that service is currently only considered "alpha" and requires whitelisting (let me know if you'd like to try it and I'll see if I can get you added). Once it's more broadly available, you'll be able to develop your own solutions.  The config files for setting up your own b2evolution click-to-deploy could be hosted on github/etc for sharing / re-use.

Best of luck, Jimmy!

And niltze, Eric!

Indeed, I found GCE command line extremely flexible in provisioning
and setting up a client's b2evolution-based site in a Debian VM --
since my client's previous legacy host had failed during an upgrade.
Migration to GCE was done on the fly via bash from my Debian local

By the way, in the 'Click to Deploy' Apps menu in the Developers
Console, I can see there is an option to select WordPress. Is there a
way that I can contribute b2evolution < http://b2evolution.net > to be
offered as a Click to Deploy App, as well?

Best Professional Regards.
