I'm using current for a fairly large number of nodes at work, for errata
deployment. Coupled with my automated kickstart's, it's a vital piece
of my linux management solution.

47 at last count.

I use mysql. The automated kickstart solution mentioned above, as well
as the administrative web-frontend all use mysql to store the data, so
it makes sense in my environment to use the same database. I also use
mod_php and mod_python with apache.

Some folks I work with use yum repos for their package management.
I think current provides a much more robust solution, but
if the two could be integrated, that's even better :).

Thanks as always Jack!
