Rerun is a lightweight tool-building framework useful to those implementing management procedure with shell scripts. It will help you organize your implementation into well-defined modular interfaces. Collections of management modules can be archived and delivered as a single executable to facilitate team handoffs. Using the "stubbs" module, rerun will even facilitate unit tests. When users execute rerun module commands, rerun can record execution data into log files which can later be replayed.
