Re: update of (several) config files

Hello Tomas,

this question should better go to debian-user@lists.debian.org.

It depends very much on your needs.  For simple cases look into
cfengine/cfengine2 (I do not like cfengine, but there is no
alternative).  For really cool stuff look at FAI (fully
automatic install), which has some system update features.  At
the list mentioned above you will get better information.

Cheers, WB
