This is the first blog post for what will be the development blog for ShopRag, a rails based Nagios configuration manager. This project intends to address a complete lack of stable and extensible applications designed to manage complex Nagios configurations.
The target audience of this project is far and wide, your every day do-it-all administrator who's fighting to keep their head above water, all the way up to enterprise teams looking for a solution to ease configuration of a complex nagios implementation.
I've made the decision to use Google Code to host this project, for several reasons. First and foremost, utilizing Google Code allows the developers to focus solely on the development of ShopRag, without having to be concerned about the day to day operations of issue trackers, source repositories, and all the other associated tasks and tools related to software development.
I don't suspect there will be much of a usable system for the next few weeks, I'm still working on feature requirements for the first run of this project, and making road-map decisions. In the meantime, keep an eye on the Google Code and Google Groups pages to track status. For anyone who's interested in joining this project, please email me; calib0rx/@/gmail/./com.
