hindsight on cfengine 3

In retrospect, maybe what I should've done is switched the origin of my sysutil/cfengine to sysutil/cfengine34 when 3.5.0 came out. Since, I see that cfengine-3.4.5 has recently come out, bug fixes to cfengine-3.4.4 were more of what I was after than new features. Though I am intrigued by what 3.5.0 appears to bring, and am considering making use of it...of course, by the time I get to it 3.5.1 or newer might be out.

OTOH, do I really want to build cfengine-3.4.5 in semi-usable package management system we use at work for building and maintaining packages for Solaris 9 and Solaris 10 SPARC, and Solaris 10 x64. The system builds everything 32-bit, though I'm pretty sure we don't have 32-bit hardware anywhere in the datacenter anymore. Though we still have a few Solaris 10 systems around.

Hmmm....

:hmm:

Seems to be a problem with a client using openssl 0.9.8 talking to a webserver using 1.0.0?

Guess there's a patch submitted against 0.9.8y.... http://www.mail-archive.com/openssl-dev@openssl.org/msg32486.html

But, this will be a big mess at work....nothing is using 0.9.8y yet (though I've been meaning to build it so I'll be ready when there's a bind-9.9.3-P2...had started building 9.9.3 when there was a security advisory of problem introduced in that version...so I'm waiting for the next 'real' security patch to do the upgrade...though maybe I shouldn't, since the intent is for this to be the first 64-bit build....)

Not sure what I'm going to do about cfengine3 at work though....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
