Dear Colleagues,

Is anyone using ansible on FreeBSD for anything useful in production? 

I understand the power of ansible is in its modules. If there is no
module for your task, you are in a fix.

I've experimented with the pkgng module, it does install packages :-)
Most modules are meant for Linux however.

What FreeBSD tasks do you automate with ansible, and with what modules?

I use net/rdist6 to update some configs on remote hosts, so I don't
think I'll benefit much from file copying modules of ansible.
