This is not any kind of sensible answer to the original question, but the general approach “give ops people a shell on a box with a rancid repository, encourage them to write scripts that do stuff” has the potential to cause all kinds of good things to happen faster than the time taken to organise a conference call to discuss requirements gathering for a “production” system.

Examples, as ever:

  ftp://ftp.isc.org/isc/toolmakers/

(It’s not pretty. But it’s not supposed to be pretty.)
