Hi! Many of you have probably heard of Ubuntu and Canonical's Landscape. Landscape is a simple service for managing a collection of Ubuntu systems. An agent is installed on each Ubuntu system and sends status information back to the central "mothership". From the web-based controller, you can even send commands back to the agent.
There's some problems with this... Landscape server is not open source and Landscape, as far as I can tell, does not work on non-Ubuntu systems. It's also fairly limiting in the information and alerting, IMO. Landscape client, BTW, is written in Python.
I'd like to start a new project that starts from scratch and open sources both sides. I have a pretty good plan so far but need help on some ideas and certainly some coding. I can turn my start into a github project so we can work from there.
Is this the best place to solicit support or should I post elsewhere? If this is a good place, any interest?
