1. Applying rpm updates to the service (and to any underlying
pieces of the application stack) if necessary.
2. Applying hotfixes via the puppet hotfix module if there's a
securiry fix or bugfix that needs to go in and it's not worth
spinning a new rpm.
3. Keeping up with upstream development

5. Fixing things should an app start throwing errors in production
for unknown reasons
6. Work on deployment problems
Don't hesitate if there are any other concerns or questions on this
