3. If you don't have a gpg private key already, generate one: `gpg --gen-key`
4. Run: `propellor --add-key $KEYID`, which will make propellor trust
your gpg key, and will sign your `~/.propellor` repository using it.
5. Edit `~/.propellor/config.hs`, and add a host you want to manage.
You can start by not adding any properties, or only a few.

Repeat until happy and move on to the next host. :)
8. Optionally, set up a [centralized git repository](https://propellor.branchable.com/centralized_git_repository/)
