Hi @mhaggel

I was looking at the AppDB VM appliance description file necessary for continuous delivery. This immediately reminded me of the “facts” that DevOps tools get from their targets - in particular facter : https://docs.puppet.com/facter/

It would be awesome if the AppDB description were a superset of the “facts” returned by things like facter, since this constitutes a very widely-used schema of information. Can you comment on how you created the schema for the AppDB images ?

Is there some sort of validation script that we can run over generated descriptions to see whether they are ok?

Thanks!
