[asterisk-users] Configuration management and update deployment - what do you use?

Hi All

We have about 15 different asterisk boxes around the place and on my 
list has been automate deployment updates and keep a revision history. 
They are mostly not publicly accessible, and external SIP access is 
closely firewalled , so updates happen straight away when its something 
like heartbleed, but take a while to trust/test new releases.

Our boxes are Ubuntu LTS - mostly 14.04 at the moment. We use Freebpx as 
the configuration front end and so that tends to be a more manual 
update, although there is an API we could use to keep things in step. We 
run backups from freepbx and archive those as well as any specific 
asterisk settings missed. At the moment our scale means manual is okay, 
but automation would make it easier if the learning curve and new issues 
aren't too high.

We compile asterisk from source as the packages aren't usually quite 
what we want.

I was just curious how people deploy asterisk across multiple platforms 
and keep them all up to date?

What tools are good for this sort of thing?

Thanks very much

Cheers Duncan
