Erza (who works for me) and I just got Will's script to work with classes.

When we tested it appeared to hang on us, but it was just busy downloading pkgs.

That brought up an idea. If would nice to be able to give it different options will its being run via cfrun opposed to cfservd. We'd like to see what's going on when we invoke via cfrun (so we know why its taking so long).

Is there a way to figure out how the cfengine script was invoked from within the script?

Yeah.  I would file wishlist bugs against those packages requesting
that they use debconf instead.  That won't help in the short term
(before the next release) unfortunately.

In the short term you could probably adapt my script to use debwrap
pretty easily.  I haven't tried, but I think you could just set
$ENV{QANDA_DIR} or $ENV{QANDA_FILE} and throw "debwrap" on the front
of the system() call.

apt-get install debwrap && man 8 debwrap for more.
