[nycbug-talk] version control for config files

I think the subject pretty much sums it up - I'm sick of not tracking 
changes in /etc and /usr/local/etc.  I want something that deal with file 
permissions and is relatively transparent.

I've been googling around, but finding not much other than weird 
contortions based on CVS that make such huge disclaimers as "this of 
course does not work with symlinks" or "this of course does not maintain 
file ownership/permissions".

cfengine and the like do more than I want...

Any interesting ideas out there?

The most I have to work with is perhaps a dozen servers, maybe almost that 
many jails.
