           Summary: Making nALFS network aware (client/server model)
           Product: Automated Linux From Scratch
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Back End (XML Handlers)

This is a wishlist item:

Making nALFS network aware. the one huge advantage it would have is that you can
have one profile being run on a whole bunch of machines at once. Right now I
create a profile, put it in CVS, run it locally. Login (console or ssh whatever
works best) onto different machine, cvs up profiles, run the modified profile on
that system. Login to yet another machine, repeat.


Make profile, select which machines it affects, run it, nALFS will connect to
other machines and run them.

This feature has been discussed a long time ago, something used to exist as a
proof of concept but it's gone for the moment. Is there a chance you guys like
this feature or will consider it for the future? If not, I'd better brush up on
my network programming skills (and I got just the perfect book to teach me that
too, if I can find the time).
