There is a small app I wrote many years back to handle kickstarts, I am 
sure that could be expanded into something that can be used to share 
cobbler / puppet / kickstart configs. Something that should move up in 
the priority list for sure.

not really - but there is a definite overlap in interest there. Cobbler 
uses reposync under the hood - which is something that should absolutely 
be on that page, since thats what it does.

Cobbler on the other hand is a much wider and a much more focused tool 
on provisioning, not so much about management and maintenance.
