That is the goal.
I don’t think I will replicate my original deployment stuff with ansible.

The drop package may be nar+.  I don’t think I want to put the
configurations in the nar.
So as far as what we have now… Nar will replace the uber, and we will still
do the assembly for the

I’ll have a better idea as I get to that part.

Could the archetype be deployment agnostic? It's probably a little
simplistic due to all the configs, but I like the NAR solution of simply
drop in lib and restart services.
