In general, you are *much* better off dealing with clusters -- and even
heterogeneous networks -- using a declarative tool like puppet or
cfengine.  It costs some manhours to set up, but IME you end up with a
more robust setup than just blindly running the same command on a dozen
or a hundred hosts at once.

IMO, as a cluster admin, I need and use both types of tools at different
times.  So, I have been following this thread closely.

I use dsh for what you describe, but it's command line.  It doesn't
work real well to edit things in full screen mode.

I've found omnitty to be useful as well, but it's not widely supported and I had to hack my windows ssh client a bit as it's hardcoded to use fkeys (which not every client supports nicely).

Which reminds me -- in looking for docu on this subject and others, I found the screen page, and the only thing there is links to the mailing list. Are there no official web-docs? FAQs? Or are they all maintained externally?
