nothing easier than that, proven on 20 production servers
and 5 development machines since 2008 while the machines
were installd with F9 and until now upgraeded with yum
to F17 - so yes i know how to manage hosts

[root at buildserver:~]$ cat /buildserver/distribute-pear.sh
source /Volumes/dune/buildserver/server-list.txt
find /usr/share/pear/ -type d -exec /bin/chmod 0755 "{}" \;
find /usr/share/pear/ -type f -exec /bin/chmod 0644 "{}" \;
find /usr/share/doc/pear/ -type d -exec /bin/chmod 0755 "{}" \;
find /usr/share/doc/pear/ -type f -exec /bin/chmod 0644 "{}" \;
function rh_push_pear
 echo $1
 rsync --times \

 echo ""
for item in ${RH_TARGET_SERVERS[*]}
 rh_push_pear $item

no, but that does not change the problem of having hundrets of
pear apckages and only a subset as RPM - so in the real world
you mix them which is BAD

if ALL pear packages would be in the repos this whould be
a diffeent story - but taht is unlikely because who
would maintain all this packages really?
