#2 Updated by Brian Gupta over 11 years ago

Fog was discussed, but it would majorly increase the gem dependency footprint of Foreman.

#3 Updated by Corey Osman over 11 years ago

Why not make it optional? If you want fog features run this script to install the gems.

#4 Updated by Brian Gupta over 11 years ago

Corey, could you be more specific? IE: What EC2 features is the Amazon-e2 gem missing? If the question is bringing in Fog to support multiple clouds that should probably be a separate discussion altogether.

The Amazon-EC2 gem is the cleanest way to get EC2 support, and is licensed under the Ruby license which is 100% compatible with GPLv2. (Fog is Apache 2.0, but I don't think that should stop us from using it since we don't distribute the libraries with the code.)
