After 5-6 weeks of being listed as a "potentially unmaintained package"
(the previous owner wanted to see a new maintainer, since he doesn't use
it actively anymore),


was picked up by Jeff Sheltren <sheltren at>, who volunteers as
the new package owner. Bugzilla component and open tickets have been
transferred accordingly.


Cfengine, or the configuration engine is an agent/software robot and a
very high level language for building expert systems to administrate and
configure large computer networks. Cfengine uses the idea of classes and
a primitive form of intelligence to define and automate the configuration
and maintenance of system state, for small to huge configurations. Cfengine
is designed to be a part of a computer immune system.
