infrastructure and looking to the community for insight. We currently
have 450 servers (250 Solaris 10/11, 50 SUSE, 150 RedHat) to manage.
The questions I'm grappling with are:

3) OpenCSW vs GEM install
4) Should I run the master on Solaris or use RedHat with the
expectation that it will be better supported within the Puppet
So, is anyone using the puppet/puppet3 CSW module; in production?
