Planned work

  • Migrate non-base plugins and modules from the ansible/ansible repository to smaller collection repositories

  • Add functionality to ease transition to collections, such as automatic redirects from the 2.9 names to the new FQCN of the plugin

  • Create new ansible-base package representing the ansible/ansible repository

Additional Resources

The 2.10 release of Ansible will fundamentally change the scope of plugins included in the ansible/ansible repository, by moving much of the plugins into smaller collection repositories that will be shipped through
