Push from a dedicated Chromebook that is otherwise not connected to
the internet or used for anything other than cdist sounds a lot more
secure to me than having a master server that is always hanging out
online waiting for an exploit.

I, too, have a deep-seated aversion to push management, but cdist
looks like it's just automating what I already do as a sysadmin. The
simplicity of the approach is very compelling.
