Software Architecture & Strategy Team (Niels Braczek)

  • Unattended deployment: Starting an initiative to support WHM and the like; planning to involve Viktor Vogel, since he has got experience with such things regarding Plesk. Since we can’t support each and every hosting panel solution individually, we should concentrate on completing the CLI access to all necessary functions.
    A 2018 GSoC project is probably containing a starting point for a CLI installer.
