Test Fedora 22 at Rackspace with Ansible

Fedora Infinity LogoFedora 22 will be arriving soon and it’s easy to test on Rackspace’s cloud with my Ansible playbook:

As with the previous playbook I created for Fedora 21, this playbook will ensure your Fedora 21 instance is fully up to date and then perform the upgrade to Fedora 22.

WARNING: It’s best to use this playbook against a non-production system. Fedora 22 is an alpha release at the time of this post’s writing.

This playbook should work well against other servers and virtual machines from other providers but there are a few things that are Rackspace-specific cleanups that might not apply to other servers.
