Oftentimes it is helpful for your servers to create and post their own documentation. In Operations, it is important that we focus on publishing information in a timely, organized, and appropriate fashion. Of necessity, a good Operations team has multiple tools. Unfortunately, the multiplicity of tools can result in information fragmentation and difficulty in providing a single location for Developers and collegues to go for answers to common questions. Additionally, it is often sub-optimal to give access to a particular toolset simply to provide log or status information.
Tasks such as updating tickets when build artifacts have been generated, self-generated wikipages, or even posting drive fragmentation status are all basic tasks that servers should be able to do themselves. This is a basic attempt at enabling machines to interact with a Trac system for the specific purposes listed above... As well as others.
Trac: http://trac.edgewall.org/ Duh. And, yeah, I know it's 2012 and I'm still using Trac. Still havent found anything more simple and straightforward for a small organization that uses Subversion for their version control system. Install the Trac xml-rpc (http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/XmlRpcPlugin) plugin and then ensure your trac user has permissions appropriate to the type of Trac-interaction the servers will be performing... My "notuser" account has TICKET_ADMIN, WIKI_ADMIN, and XML_RPC.
The bulk of the attributes point at an encrypted databag for Trac authentication information.
I am aware that this cookbook wields the Trac xml-rpc "delete" method like it's going out of style. However, using straightup 'update' throws errors that I'm not currently willing to dig into.
