I am thinking of a Chicago dev-ops meeting that will be like the
language shootout, only for deployment tools.  If I can get 5 people
to say they might attend and one that says they might present, I might
go ahead with this.  so not looking for commitment, just interest.

  I don't have a date, I need to talk to the devops group leader, and
I don't even know who that is, but I want to make sure someone would
bother showing up before I put any more effort into it.

fabric, chef, puppet, salt, ansible (just heard about it yesterday)
am i missing any?
if someone wants to do bash... sure. we need comic relief.
