comment CentOS repositories: EPEL or rpmforge, which one is better and why?
Anyone who has used RH distros for any extended period of time knows you end adding additional repositories. Hopefully you add these in leu of dropping pkgs into a local repo only to watch them go stale. I would highly recommend where possible that people look into using Ubuntu for the sake of package sanity. It's rare as all hell to be missing a mainstream package from the default repos. When it does occur there's almost always an alternative repo. The need to manage an internal repo is avoided in almost all cases.

comment CentOS repositories: EPEL or rpmforge, which one is better and why?
Truth. I now use EPEL in combination with some of the project specific repositories, e.g. epel, percona, etc. What's nice is that there is very little overlap in package names so yum-priorities is not the necessity it once was. Additionally, there are now the SCL repositories for common software like ruby, python, and the like.

comment expand hostnames to fqdn before calling ssh?
Don't think you understood the problem. I want the hostname fully expanded BEFORE calling ssh. This does not do so, nor would putting a million entries in /etc/hosts be a solution.

comment expand hostnames to fqdn before calling ssh?
Quite aware, thanks. Was hoping for a preexisting ssh alias/function/wrapper or the like.

This is what I will likely end up doing. Was just hoping someone had something a bit slicker than me doing an ssh alias. Thanks!
