Ansible Playbooks for Snapshots and Windows Updates

I have created a few playbooks for ManageIQ / CloudForms and posted them to GitHub. I thought some others might find them useful.

One is a playbook that grabs a list of templates that are tagged for automatic updates and then applys any pending windows updates to them and converts them back to templates. This is useful if you have a large amount of Windows Templates that need to be updated every month.

The other is a personal favorite of mine. It looks for VMs with Snapshots older than 90 days and emails the owner letting them know that they should delete them.

I created these testing on CloudForms 4.6. Hopefully they work as well on MIQ.
