Re: Packaging terraform?

Oh I'd also like to add, for a practical example of such a noob trap, see the ansible package (which I wouldn't recommend using).

Stability is mainly useful on software that you run on production, rather than software you use for setting up production. So for instance I'd love for a docker package to be a thing in stable, but you don't always get what you want in life.

Because terraform interfaces with proprietary apis usually, it needs to be updated more often than stable is updated to be useful.

So while it may (or may not, i dunno all the details) be technically allowed and possible. A terraform package in stable would be something of a noob trap.

You mean: Terraform and the providers?  I don't think you want to open
that pit.


Without facts, the decision cannot be made logically.  You must rely on
your human intuition.
