h1. Wiki 


 This site is **being built** (aka 90's "under construction" style). We are moving internal documentation about the ungleich infrastructure to the public and create new services/infrastructure building blocks so that users can easily access and combine them. You can read about our motivation for Open Infrastructure project on our "blog": 

 You can contact us "on our chat":, on "Twitter": or by email at **info at**.

 h4. Hand-managed services 

 Most of our infrastructurue/services is managed via cdist (see dot-cdist internal repository) but some are hand-deployed and managed. There can be various reasons for that but the most likely is that we did not have the time / it was not worth to commit the resources to 'cdistify' the deployment for the initial single / test deployment. They will eventually (TM) be reconfigured with cdist.
