Minion auto-registration with master

There is a way to auto-sign new minions, using the autosign_file master config parameter:

However, keep in mind that this is not necessarily the most secure option, as any minion tuning into the master with an qualifying ID would automatically be accepted.

There are other means of handling key generation and pre-accepting keys that can be achieved via our Python API.
