I'm learning about salt.
I understand that the way things work, state files must be put under a root directory specified statically in the master/minion config.
So my question is, is there a way to execute an arbitrary sls file on the filesystem, i.e. not under the configured file roots?
The purpose of this, is that I want my projects to include sls files describing the required state of the system on which they will be deployed, and ideally I'd like not to have to copy/symlink those files into the salt file root.
