Re: Google Summer of Code 2006: SMIT clone



I'd like to see an AIX SMIT clone (or at least something in spirit).  

For those who haven't used it, its a text & motif based system
administration tool which basically guides you through a pile of options
and then runs the commands required to do the task.  

It has made my life tons easier when dealing with AIX, and it'd probably
be a great help for newbies and it would tie all of the administrative
tasks together.

Here's a couple of 'screen shots' for the text-based version.
