      Description

      [10:19am] bstansberry: right now DeploymentUnitElement has this "allowed" property
      [10:20am] bstansberry: which if false is supposed to mean that deployment is ineligible to be mapped to a ServerGroup
      [10:20am] bstansberry: I'm inclined to trash that
      [10:20am] bstansberry: any opinions?
      [10:21am] bstansberry: having it means having a separate class ServerGroupDeploymentElement, plus we'd need to have update operations to toggle "allowed"
      [10:21am] dmlloyd: it's basically a domain-wide disable of the deployment, right?
      [10:21am] bstansberry: yeah
      [10:22am] dmlloyd: doesn't ServerGroupDeploymentElement also have an "allowed" field?
      [10:22am] bstansberry: no, it has "start"
      [10:22am] bstansberry: which is whether it's actually deployed
      [10:22am] bstansberry: (could use a rename, but that's another issue)
      [10:22am] dmlloyd: hmm
      [10:22am] dmlloyd: well I envision those two as being the same thing
      [10:23am] dmlloyd: the global "allowed" flag would restrict deployment, not mapping
      [10:23am] bstansberry: I don't think "allowed" as a kind of shortcut to undeploy things is worth it
      [10:23am] bstansberry: if users want something undeployed, update the server group
      [10:24am] dmlloyd: the use case would be, someone discovers a security issue in a deployment which is mapped to 45 server groups
      [10:24am] bstansberry: create a deployment plan and fix it
      [10:24am] dmlloyd: I guess they could just remove the deployment globally
      [10:24am] bstansberry: "allowed" is just a shortcut for a deployment plan
      [10:24am] bstansberry: with vague semantics unless we write some really nice documentation
      [10:25am] dmlloyd: I guess I'm willing to trust deployment plans
