I moved some steps forward and stubbed a second role "osgeo7-nginx"
in preparation to save more of the changes I brought to that machine.

It would be good to get some input from whoever else had used ansible,
things like how to organize these roles, whether to copy configuration
files one by one or by dumping the whole content of an /etc/ directory
or things like that ...

Alex, as you mentioned you have had some experience with ansible, did
you take a look of what we're up to at this point ? Do you have
suggestions for moving on ?
