Random thought -- If this can be run locally as root, and I guess it
can, you could just use the local Cobbler API and avoid the
My preference would be to keep this part of the ADK package as it
wouldn't be useful unless someone installed the ADK and is probably
lightweight enough to keep in that package, but having it documented on
the Cobbler Wiki for folks to be able to find out about it would
definitely be interesting -- even if that's a pointer to the ADK Wiki.
FYI -- I imagine most folks here don't know what the ADK is. Bryan is
referring to http://thincrust.et.redhat.com -- he can give better
background info on this than I can, so I'll let him do that and explain
why it is interesting and what the Cobbler pieces do.
