comment Which package management system should we use to do deployments?
We're using puppet and want to integrate our packaging solution into puppet - do you see a solution to combine puppet and capistrano? (as puppet is "pull" and capistrano is "push" for me it seems not compatible)

Yay, thanks for the answer - I also think putting some effort into learning to create good RPM packages will pay off. Do you know some good "RPM primer" - or how did you learn about RPM?

Thanks for your answer - sounds experienced. Some questions: Apart from debconf (which IMO we currently have no need for), are there other reasons why you prefer debian packaging to RPM? Then I forgot to name the limitations of our current tool - namely there's no downgrading (rollback) and no deleting of files possible. Plus we don't want to manage a home-made solution - there MUST be ready-to-be-used solution out there, no?

I forgot to add the current limitation of our home-made option 3 - there's no such thing as downgrade (rollback, in our situation) and deleting of files - that lead us to consider switching to RPM. RPM being bloatware - I guess once we figured out how it works we could script it so it would be fairly simple, no?

we're using puppet - but I don't see how puppet could deploy our frontend code without using any sort of packaging/source revision infrastracture. Our idea was to use puppet to trigger the package-updates

@Ignacio: What would be a better benchmark? I just need a quick-and-easy way to half a bunch of servers into two halfs, each half should have approximately the same cpu power.

indeed, console is not a fit for our business people :-) For me personally it is - I'm a screen fan
