I've been watching Juju evolve for a while now and promising myself I'd find the time to have a play with it. I never did, until the last couple of nights.

In response to a post from +Alan Pope about deploying a Minecraft server with two simple Juju commands, +Clive Darra responded asking about a Minetest version of the same.  Since I inadvertently got my boys hooked on Minetest recently and set up a server on our LAN so we can all play together, I figured this was my calling.

So I give you the initial version of the Minetest Server Juju charm to try out and file bugs against!  It still needs a README file, which I'll work on tonight, but until then, if you want to run a server with anything other than default settings you can check out the config-changed hook.

+Alan Pope - say hi to Salem for me!
DOORS: Do not allow any closed doors in any room. To get door open, stand on hind legs and hammer with forepaws. Once door is opened, it is not necessary to use it. After you have ordered an "outside" door opened, stand halfway in and out and think about several things.

And so here we are, observing that ages old annual tradition that no one believes in any more and no one remembers the point of. Yep, British Summer Time is here!
