Hi all,

I am interested in your thoughts and experiences with regards to managing
diverse systems at scale in terms of package management.  More specifically
an implementation of rpm/rpm5 and yum on FreeBSD.

I'm most interested in the pros and cons of implementation, deployment, and
operation of such a system.  Are there significant challenges in deploying
and managing such a system?  What are the aspects of doing so that should
be carefully evaluated?

Thanks for any feedback...
