It has been noted in several different posts that some community members might not have the expertise to setup and use Foreman to solve their deployment needs. As a community member noted during our birthday party celebrations, Foreman is like a Swiss Army Knife and a user needs a certain level of Linux/sysadmin expertise to even start with Foreman. We had a recent case where a user did not have Ubuntu/Puppet knowledge yet was ploughing ahead with a Ubuntu/Puppet/Foreman deployment. While such a can-do attitude is admirable, even with the most granular docs, it’s unrealistic to expect community members/docs to bridge such a knowledge gap.
as well as others in other posts, it’s probably a good idea to have some information for users who have the means and need paid support to avail of the productized versions of Foreman or consulting services around Foreman.
I have been looking at the layout of www.theforeman.org and think creating a new page under Get Help, below the Support entry. I considered putting it on the Support page, but that seems quite busy in and of itself. I have also invited iRonin and @Dirk and @Bernhard_Suttner to write guest blog posts on their downstream/consultation offerings that I can then link to from the website. I have a number of others to reach out to, and if you’d like to save me the bother, feel free to reach out to me
What do you think? Is there a better place to do this?
