Not sure how CFEngine can be better than simple script in bash for
administering Hadoop in this case. But I am sure how it might be a
disaster when you forget e.g. a semicolon in some certain place and
run it.

In that case Tim has to decide messing up with
http://rpm4darwin.sourceforge.net/ (read: seriously affect his
infrastructure with rpm'ed Darwin ports) or not. I am not sure how
your Linux-only packages will work on "rpmized" OSX either.

Any plans to support IPS (http://opensolaris.org/os/project/pkg/)?
C'mon, guys, Java on Solaris is still better and ZFS has much more
advantage over standard POSIX bridges that are available on Linux at
the moment. :-) I've got running Hadoop on Solaris and its zones
finally good: just for some reason Hadoop disliked ZFS rpool within a
zone, but asks for a real device mounted. Haven't figured out it yet
by reading sources, since I am too new to Hadoop, but that's was the
only issue so far (0.20 and 0.19.1 versions tried).
