RedHat opens Satellite service!!

From: Chris M.

To any of the Fedora/Centos folks out there, today some very good news 
from RedHat.  They have finally gone the right route and opened up their 
RHN/Satellite product code base to the outside world.

"Spacewalk is an open source (GPLv2) Linux systems management solution. 
It is the upstream community project from which the Red Hat Network 
Satellite product is derived. Spacewalk manages software content updates 
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and other Linux distributions such as 
Fedora, CentOS, and Scientific Linux, within your firewall. You can 
stage software content through different environments, managing the 
deployment of updates to systems and allowing you to view at which 
update level any given system is at across your deployment. A clean 
central web interface allows viewing of systems and their software 
update status, and initiating update actions.. ....."

For sys-admins like myself, this tool is something I have been dying for 
to help make life easier managing updates and packages for mass numbers 
of Fedora/Centos systems.  Check this one out if you can.  I'm planning 
on setting aside some time for this soon and will happily report back to 
the group at the next open topic Meetup event.

now if we can only go a step further and get something like this that 
was distro agnostic....(an idea I've had in my head for years.. ugh..)
