Does anyone have any experience with Fog?

I recently started toying with The Foreman (a complete lifecycle management tool for physical and virtual servers). Foreman is a GUI that allows you to:
  • Provision on bare-metal & public or private clouds all from one place with one simple process;
  • Configure your servers with Puppet & use it as an External Node Classifier (ENC);
  • Collect Puppet reports and facts, monitor host configuration, collect reports on status, distribution and trends.
Foreman refers to the creation and management of hosts on a number of virtualization and cloud services as Compute Resources. Compute Resources are Foreman's interface to the Fog library. To date, Foreman supports only the following providers:
  • EC2
  • Libvirt
  • OpenStack Nova
  • oVirt / RHEV
  • Rackspace
  • VMware
I recently found two projects on GitHub that have already begun working on a Fog implementation for DigitalOcean: I'm wondering if anyone is interested in helping out? If so, feel free to take a look at Sam Kottler's DigitalOcean branch of his Foreman repo on GitHub or join the discussion in the Foreman Users Google Group.
