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!

Message Folks,

The Current mailing lists have been a bit more active of late and I
was hoping that folks out there using Current would identify
themselves and anwser the following. Not looking for too many details
so just briefly.

  How do you use Current? (For home network, research lab, deployment
of all errata to large network, etc.)

   How many machines do you support with Current?

   Why database do you use and why? (Such as: MySQL, company already
runs mysql servers.)

Some future plans that I've been thinking about are: Make Current
work with the Yum meta-data format. With a plugin for Yum allow
tracking and authentication of Yum clients.
Current is not far from either. However, don't expect these tomorrow. :-)
