As a suggestion, you should probably take a good look at "cfengine" if
have not already.  We maintain about half a dozen Debian boxes with it
and it's a godsend!

Once the packages are installed, and the cvs repository mounted, it's
just a matter of typing "/etc/cron.daily/cfengine" to fully configure
the entire system.  It takes a while to set everything up, but well
worth it once you do!
