I don't think its really viable to suggest that Conga is a replacement
for system-config-cluster. One is a simple desktop UI for editing
cluster config files. The other is a large web based management
infrastructure. Certainly alot of people may want to use Conga, but
I can well imagine people using s-c-c , wouldn't want to deploy a
webapp just to get a tool to edit cluster config files
