Description Stephen John Smoogen 2002-12-11 19:53:11 UTC
We are using cfengine here at the various Labs and department, but not having an
official RPM makes maintenance a hassle. Would it be possible to have it
included in future versions of Red Hat Linux and/or Advanced Server? Having it
being able to tie into RHN in the future would be a great bonus... but another
request :)

This is better suited to Fedora Extras at this point:

Comment 2 Christopher Browne 2005-07-27 17:17:15 UTC
We'd like to have an official RPM so that we could request that service
providers install it for us.

We have "managed services" hosts where the service providers would consider it a
severe security threat to install RPMs from outside sources.

If we can't get this, it may lead to migration to Other Distributions that do
include it as a "first class" citizen...

It's in Extras, so if you're using Fedora Core, that should be available to install.
