Mailpile Salt States for Ubuntu or Debian

I wrote these Salt States to install Mailpile on an Ubuntu host. Fun fact, it took me 20 minutes to write these states and they worked the first time I ran them. Disclaimer - I used a throw away server and wasn't concerned that buckets of packages were installed to the system instead of using a virtualenv.

cd /opt/Mailpile
./mp --set sys.http_host=

Then open a web browser the IP address of the host running the mp command and follow the prompts to setup the server/client/app.
