If you are now thinking of Salt-SSH, this is not completely wrong, but also not right. What we are talking about here, is an other Transport for Salt, a replacement for ZeroMQ.
First of all, Upstream is interested in this and this is a strong argument. Also we would like to play with the idea of a master that is establishing a connection to a minion and not the other way around like the ZeroMQ transport is doing it. This would be the answer to the use-cases where we can't keep the connection to the minion all the time or establishing a connection to the master is simply not possible because of network configurations - but it would be possible for the master to reach the minion.
- Deep diving into how a SaltStack transport works.
- Getting familiar with SSH and the Python libs available.
- Start implementation.
