comment Is it legal to create an RPM which only runs %post scripts to modify a file owned by another RPM?
The .repo file is marked as a configuration file by the packager; you can verify this with rpm -qc centos-release. If the file is edited, an updated package will save the new version as (filename).repo.rpmnew and will not overwrite your changes.

comment Is anyone using GPS for time sync?
$3000 is about the cost of Windows 2008 Server Enterprise with 25 CALs, RHEL AP for one server with 24/7 support, or (fully loaded) a $100k/year employee for four days. If you require accurate time in a non-Internet-connected network, and your PHBs won't give Symmetricom what they're asking, please try to avoid slicing a wrist open on their pointy hair -- it's quite sharp.

comment What are the arguments for and against a network policy where the sys admin knows users passwords?
This is where password complexity policy comes in, I think. (That, and running L0phtcrack on a regular basis.)
