      Description

      Is there any reason a policy run is not executed on bootstrap? Once we have the policy from the bootstrap it seems like we would want to kick off the first agent run right away. I always get confused if I forget to do it manually and something that generally converges quickly has not completed yet.

      For example on new policy servers there might be firewall rules or software_updates directories that are promised but they wont be repaired until after the first run. If you have clients bootstrapping quickly after bringing up a policy server they might fail to bootstrap or report broken promises because things they expect to be there are not there.
