Code Repositories debian-janitor-ansible / master

Tree @master (Download .tar.gz)

This repository contains a set of ansible playbooks for setting up a Debian Janitor instance.

The various roles of the Janitor can be set up on different hosts or the same host.

  • debian.yml contains the playbook for the main janitor instance
  • kali.yml contains an example playbook for setting up a Janitor for Kali Linux

The only externally facing job is the janitor-site. All other jobs should not be externally accessible. A wireguard network is one way of achieving this.

After installation, you'll need to manually log in to the janitor user on the publisher and log in to the relevant hoster sites by running "svp login". E.g.::

svp login
svp login
svp login
