I've used cfengine in a production environment, and found it to

* Self contained binary.
* Documentation - comprehensive but can be hard to know where to start

* Configuration is unlike anything you've ever seen
* The "editfiles" section of the configuration is also unlike anything
you've ever seen - and is different than any other configuration section
Actually almost every section has its own variants of the syntax.

not much else.. this can make dealing with problems a bit of a
headache when he has completely theoretical issues he wants to try
