The use of PuppetLab's mcollective is being planned by my company's SysOps team. I will be reviewing their use of the tool and implementation of the system.

At this point I don't have a lot of knowledge regarding how mcollective works and would love to get somebody else's feel regarding security considerations/implications of the software.

Has anyone used or reviewed mcollective, and what did you find?

For reference, PuppetLabs have their own security documentation for the product. I assume you've read it, but for the convenience of future data archaeologists it's here.
