i'm looking for an alternative to Landscape, Spacewalk (for RHEL), or CTL to perform a specific job. I need to control and apply OS upgrades on ubuntu systems, for 100+ servers, and so far i wasn't that lucky. I've tried Approx tool (similar to apt-proxy), but it just caches the content, and what i really need to do is set update milestones, apply the upgrades to QA servers, validate, then Stage environment, and so on to Production. I hope I was clear enough, any answer will be much appreciated.

Tried puppet or spacewalk? spacewalk does have debian support. –  jrg Sep 13 '12 at 20:40
I've read that on spacewalk, I guess I should give it a try, but it does not make me feel comfortable that spacewalk is based on RHEL systems. –  Ichikata Sep 14 '12 at 12:48
Just wanted to add that I've finally found a suitable solution for this task: Apt-Mirror + Apache. Thanks for your support! –  Ichikata Dec 10 '12 at 19:45
can you share the knowledge? I'd be curious about how this would work. –  jrg Dec 10 '12 at 19:54
