Forwarding to the users list, because there seems
to be no interest on the devel list :)

I just wanted to ask if there are some plans to also
support other automation tools like salt, chef, cfengine
or others, because puppet is imho not a good tool for
large environments performance wise.

I noticed there is some support for saltstack in foreman.
So this seems to be a first step to extend the support
for different configuration management tools.

I know RH seems to favor puppet (it's used in the new
satellite product) but I don't think it scales well
(talking about thousands of hosts to manage).

Are there any opinions or plans within the ovirt community
regarding this topic?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Regards
