Thanks, that's a good one:

"As system administrators acquire more and more systems to manage,
automation of mundane tasks is increasingly important. Rather than
develop in-house scripts, it is desirable to share a system that
everyone can use, and invest in tools that can be used regardless of
one’s employer. Certainly doing things manually doesn’t scale.

Puppet has been developed to help the sysadmin community move to
building and sharing mature tools that avoid the duplication of
everyone solving the same problem..."

Reminds me of Webmin:


"Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix.
Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache,
DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually
edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a
system from the console or remotely."

Others? Recommendations?
