Puppet at Mozilla
Brandon Burton (@solarce) and Dan Maher (@phrawzty) join me today to talk about how Puppet is helping power the open web. Mozilla is best known for Firefox, but they offer several other products, tools and platforms, including Thunderbird, Etherpad, Gecko, Bugzilla and more. In this episode, we discuss Puppet at Mozilla, their infrastructure requirements, sharing modules, and the culture of automation. Here are a few links from my notes on the show:
- Socorro - a crash analysis application written by Mozilla, including Puppet code for deployment.
- PuppetAgain Docs - Mozilla's internal release engineering Puppet implementation documentation.
- Certificate Chaining - A configuration guide that enables any client to communicate freely with any puppetmaster.
