Hi all,

We are planning on doing some work to make CKAN more "cloud friendly"
and ease its deployment using tools like Docker. The main goals are:

* Make easier to install CKAN in an automated way, eg with deployment
and orchestration tools and/or in a cloud environment with multiple
CKAN instances

* Allow authorized users or scripts to change (some) configuration
options without having to login to the server, via the API or web

To that extent we have drafted a spec with the proposed changes, and
comments are very welcomed:
