Is there a method to detect configuration/package changes on a server that is more Ubuntu-centric than tripwire? I'd like a tripwire-like daemon that would report configuration diff's and package addition/removal to a central database, so reconstructing a similar server could be done from scratch. Sort of like client-side puppet but automatic and without having to install Ruby, and like tripwire, but more high-level than just file changes.
