Salt Repos

These are git repos that map to salt environments, and some basic information on them.


Provides the base salt environment. Uses gitfs and not SpiroFS, so special steps are needed to deploy it.

The only code in here is core stuff to get the godbox running salt.


Base, widely-applicable settings and opinions.

Things like the MOTD generation goes here.
