Q&A plus discussion

  • Q: The community calendar seems to be set for the wrong time zone.
  • Q: What’s the current best practice to get unprivileged users access to Salt? Can I use pepper?
    • A: Yes, but it might not be maintained any more. The core Salt team might have to look into it to see what kind of support it needs.
  • Q: Can someone check out https://github.com/saltstack/salt/pull/61968 ?
    • A: This is the regression that popped up. We can probably take a look at this.
