Setup a Rails machine with Capistrano and Ubuntu


Ubuntu Machine is a set of Open Source Capistrano recipes - packaged
as a gem - that allows you to automate the setup of a machine running
Ubuntu Server 8.0.4.
Those recipes allows you to easily install/setup : SSH, iptables,
MySQL, Apache, PHP, Ruby (+ Ruby Enterprise Edition), Rails, Phusion
Passenger, and Git.

Ubuntu Machine is released as an Open Source project.
