The package tool  formally in the IBM transarc software is deprecated --
in obsolete status.
We have tried rebuilding it to run on Linux but so far no joy.
We found this to be a helpful tool.
Basically we have traditionally used it to run daily via crontab and if
we have changed a file it get 'pushed' down and replaces old files.
This is helpful to change printcap , hosts files;  etc.
What methods / utility's are others using to keep machines configuration
files current?
