Hi,

The patch you want to put into files/ is unnecessary since https://github.com/fractalcells/ansible-iocage/pull/18/files.

I do think ports is the wrong place for this tool and it'd be a better idea to just ship it via ansible galaxy:

Thanks,
Johannes

(In reply to Johannes Jost Meixner from comment #4)

Hi, thanks for your response.

Regarding the the port, I initially created this submission in favor of having the module available system-wide rather than on a case-by-case basis with Ansible galaxy locally, specific to a local project and role. iocage tends to be the goto for jail management and I believe it would be extremely helpful for those who wish to administrate jails with Ansible, and subsequently is the reason I submitted the sysrc module port (as of late was merged), providing much needed functionality to manipulate rc.conf on FreeBSD.

By having this it's more than trivial to interface with iocage and Ansible, and for those who want this globally, great, and definitely a convenience.

Ultimately, ports are available system wide, as such think this could be applicable to Ansible modules (to an extent). Whilst on the flip-side I understand the reasoning to keeping it solely to galaxy, but the alternative option of a port would be nice. Cheers!
