RE: cfengine and revision control

I think you may end up with a single copy statement that copies all of /etc,
then a 5000 line long files section that looks like this:

/etc/passwd mode=644 owner=root action=fixall
/etc/shadow mode=600 owner=root action=fixall
/var/cfengine/checksum.db mode=600 owner=root action=fixall
[...]

If you have a variety of different owners and different modes, this might be
the only approach to use.  The only consolation I can give you is that you
only have to do this once :-).

The problem with this approach, at least at our site, is that there are
(apparently) over 5000 unique filenames we're pushing out... I inherited
this from someone else and we're still running Cfengine V1, etc...
