RHN style Satellite Server for Ubuntu

Is anyone working on an centralized server management system for Ubuntu?

The basic functionality being distributing commands over "groups" of
servers, checking patch levels remotely, centralized health-checks,
and so on. In large install bases this is quite handy - and it would
be great if it were possible to simply mirror the common repos and
then farm them out internally (which can be done, but not easily
enough that it's click-and-point).

I am thinking of starting on some scripts to achieve RHN-style
management of multiple machines, unless this can already be declared a
solved problem?
