McFeely makes it possible to run multiple programs, in a specified order, on multiple hosts. It was created to solve the problem of automatically managing users at an ISP where the users have resources like home directories on multiple machines.

    Release Notes: In certain unusual circumstances, a mcfeely-spawn child could fail but the task still be recorded as successful; this has been fixed.

      Release Notes: Implements a SIGTERM handler in mcfeely-manage to ensure mcfeely-spawn returns the status of any current tasks before it exits and syslogging is now handled by a seperate program.

          •  18 Jul 2000 05:40

            Release Notes: A bugfix was made to allow injection of jobs with an extremely high number of tasks. This version now allows mcfeely-ttpd to run through inetd. The code has been cleaned up to make changes somewhat easier to debug. The HOWTO documentation has been updated.
