Prototype: Easy Repository Administration

Wow. I've been saying that a LOT lately. King just posted a teaser of his latest piece of CAREO wizardry. One of the major problems with setting up a repository is in the difficult process of configuring it after the install. (The install is pretty painless, and could largely be automated, but the config and management can be a pain).

He's come up with a way to integrate repository management into an interface based on the MacOSX System Preferences application, so it can be managed like any other part of the system software. Except that it's web based, so it can run from any machine!

That's just plain cool stuff. If it works, it means repository admin will no longer involve hand-editing .plist and config files, feeding stuff to WOMonitor, etc...
