We use cfengine for doing such things as above (although it would be
overkill for what stephen wants to do). Its really handy for distributing
configs and whatnottery out to machines where you have different clases
of machines which run different things or require different options, etc...
Still, must look into subversion some time, although cvs and rcs have served
me well thus far...
Mr. Rogers could explain shoe-tying and make it seem like the coolest
thing in the world. He was our Uncle and older brother. He told us we
were special, and we knew he'd be there for us.
A cult leader, right down to the sneakers.
