There was a guy speaking at Ubuntu Live 2007 about how he deployed Rails
on Ubuntu.  He have a blog post about some of the stuff he do to
automate the work.  He is working outside the packaging framework, so I
do not know how much of it is applicable for us, but there it is:

Right now, I understand he deploy mostly on CentOS + KVM, but does his
development on Ubuntu + KVM so he must have a clue.  I will try to poke
him in joining the list and sharing his experience.
