This is something that I have been wanting to tackle for a while as well.
Just have not had the time to get around to it. The controlled roll-out
should also include some way to track if a task was completed on a given machine. I was planning on implementing something using mysql and a module
in cfengine. What ideas have you had about this?

My current thinking is to do this with one or two hidden files - an inversion of the one-off process listed earlier:


  DoUpdate = ( FileExists(/var/cfengine/.update) )
  AlwaysUpdate = ( FileExists(/var/cfengine/.update-always) )


    "apt-get -q -y update" define=updatedone

    "apt-get -q -y update"

    "rm -f /var/cfengine/.update"
