I've actually found a few more since I wrote that list in the bz too.

Well if someone wants to maintain it, then I suppose there is no issue.
My understanding is that Conga is the preferred method for graphical
configuration of clusters. Personally I use vi for cluster
configuration :-)

My main concern is the number of people who have tried to use this and
landed up with incorrect/broken configurations or for whom the tool
simply doesn't work.

So once I've managed to get access to the package, if you or anybody
else is keen to take it on then I'm happy to grant all the required
privs or pass maintainership on to others as required,
