I'm not sure what you mean by this. I think you mean that you have some data 
that you like to apply some rules or policy to and create some cfengine 
configs. I suppose you could use cfengine to generate cfengine *code*, but I'm 
sure, like most people, you have collection of configs and data tangled 
together that you would like to separate. 

I've seen some interesting solutions to this from other people on the list, 
some use thing like m4, others just straight perl. I've recently started to 
investigate xslt with an xml data model and had some success.

Make cfagent -p a check before the file is made available, either by checking 
it into some version control system, or simply placing it in the proper 
location for cfservd to serve, then rely on cfservd to determine [sic] 
updatedness.
