	I'm not in Y! Grid Ops, but from where I sit, it sounds like you are solving the wrong problem.

	Getting the build machines to be the same should mostly be a one-time issue.  If non-ops-types
are messing with the package load, then that's a privilege and process problem not an automation
problem.   The success of a configuration management utility is directly correlated to the
amount of work that people are willing to put into using them.
