From the Conga FAQ:

Q. What is Conga?
A. Conga is an agent/server architecture for remote administration of systems.
The agent component is called "ricci", and the server is called "luci".
One luci server can communicate with many multiple ricci agents installed on systems.
The luci server is accessed via a browser using https.

Q. What can Conga do?
A. Conga has been initially developed to provide a convenient
method for creating and managing clusters built with Red Hat Cluster Suite.
It also offers an interface for managing sophisticated storage configurations
like those often built to support clusters.

One of the richest interface tools Conga provides is for managing Xen VMs as clustered services. VMs can be created, migrated, and can
take advantage of the benefits that traditional clustered services have, such as high availability, failover domain configuration/membership, heartbeat monitoring, and

Conga also provides an interface path for creating a cluster of virtual machines
and a way to configure fencing for a virtual cluster via the host physical cluster. See this recipe if interested.

Q. Why is Conga not in the Fedora 6 distribution?
A. Development for Conga started after the freeze for inclusion in FC6.
We have prepared RPMs to run with Fedora 6 on our Downloads page.

Q. Why is conga not the Fedora 7 and Fedora 8 distributions?
A. Fedora 7 and Fedora 8 ship with python 2.5, and Zope (which Conga uses) will not run with this version of python yet.
When Zope does work with python 2.5, we will provide Conga RPMs for F7 and F8.
