No, I'm thinking that development engineers develop the configurations
that have to be tested and then deployed to production, and also the
processes to do the deployment, because ummm, they're the ones that do
development. And the operations people that manage the production
servers need to be able to roll versions forward or backwards with fully
tested configurations. So you either put complete configs under version
control or you have operators making changes on the fly that can't be
tested.
