I've been using Linux and Unix professionally since 1995, mostly in Linux-related sysadmin/systems architect jobs supporting academia. I generally know my stuff, but am very happy to learn something new and to be corrected when I'm wrong. Currently, I am the Fedora Project Leader.

comment How to automate Linux server configuration?
@staticx Yes, this isn't comprehensive. There's a whole world of provisioning systems too: Cobbler, Foreman, Satellite/Spacewalk, FAI, Razor, and that's not even getting into cloud stuff.

comment Make many subdirectories at once
@StéphaneChazelas Yes. I just think it's a good habit to always use, unless there's a very good reason to use plain -exec. It's also the case that the depth options might not be needed at all in the specific scenario needed — could be just find * with the -depth option. (But they're good to generally be comfortable with!)
