Hotwire is an integrated inventory system and a rapid deployment tool targeted at servicing enterprise environments. The currently supported rapid deployment technologies are Kickstart (Red Hat Linux), AutoYaST (SuSE Linux), and Preseed (Debian GNU/Linux). The hotwire server itself can be installed on any Linux platform, however. Additionally, where client machines have the python-dmidecode, func, and certmaster packages installed, hotwire is able to provide an automated inventory maintenance and dynamic updates, via funcwire, a hotwire tool.
Fedora-Bugzilla is a Perl module that aims to expose a kinder, gentler interface to Fedora/RedHat's Bugzilla implementation, which has a large number of custom methods. In addition to the XML-RPC methods that Bugzilla makes available, there are also some things that can be accessed only via the Web/XML interfaces, such as the flags, attachments, and comments functionality. This package works to expose those as well.
