Spacewalk opensource REDHAT satellite's project

Spacewalk is a very interesting open source project based on satellite RedHat. If you're a RedHat user, you know what I mean. For me, the satellite REDHAT is one of the most professional tools for server management and reduces management time.

If i have the time, i will tried to make a howto on the installation of this projet.
