... or how to make sysadmin tasks easy

Description
===========

The goal of the project is to create tools to easily manage systems over
the network.

Many tools exist but they are big solutions hard to maintains.

.. todo: Put examples.

The vision
==========

In my vision, the tools must :

- be simple
- be used in commandline
- be easily interfaced with gui
- be construct as a set of plugins working together

  - the plugins only manage local actions
  - remote action must be provided by remote call plugin
  - the plugins must be able to check the integrity of the configuration

- be usabled in security context

  - all action must be logged
  - any logged action must be sure
  - any logged action must be identifiable
 
- be able to use heterogeneous authentication system (openID, kerberos, ...)
- be able to dispatch informations throw different format to different kinds
  off media (web, rss, twitt, chat ...)

Firt Roadmap
============

The firt objective is to create a set of tools used to manage remote linux
installation system based on kickstart. 

We must :

- define log mechanism
- define plugins interface
