RightScale Open Source
Useful ServerTemplate assets
ServerTemplates published by "RightScale Open Source" consist of assets published by RightScale that do not belong to a standard LTS or Infinity branch. They are typically developed by one of the Professional Services, Technical Support or Sales Engineering teams. As such, they do not go through the more rigorous QA and testing cycles. Support is via the RightScale Community and a Service Level Agreement (SLA) does not apply.
Note: Not all RS Open Source assets are documented on the Support Portal. See the MultiCloud Marketplace for additional RightScale Open Source ServerTemplates.

In order to push code to a GitHub repository or pull code from a private repository, an SSH key is used for authentication purposes. For this tutorial, you will use the EC2 SSH key as your Git SSH key. Remember, you selected your EC2 SSH key when you launched the server. You will use the public key as your "Git SSH Key" so that you will be able to push changes from your Chef development server to your GitHub repository.
