Patrick, This looks interesting. Havent had time to dig in yet, but
just an FYI, several of us have been using this repo for quite a while
now https://github.com/GeoNode/ansible-geonode and its already
published to ansible-galaxy
https://galaxy.ansible.com/ortelius/geonode/. We should probably make
an effort to harmonize things.
