Thank you Doug, this is just the kind of info I was looking for! It does clear things up nicely. I had looked on the http://warewulf.lbl.gov/trac site and joined the IRC room (#warewulf) but had not seen any activity. But I do see there is very current activity on the Google Groups sites. Long live Warewulf!

Not quite. Perceus was a rewrite of WW v1, seems to have died on the vine.
WW V2+ is where you want to look. WW does both provisioning and management (always has).

I realize in internet years "several years is old" however, WW is quite stable, so the documentation is not see in great changes, WW page has documentation: http://warewulf.lbl.gov/trac (True Confession: I am supposed to be working on improving the WW docs progress has been slow, writing too many Hadoop books)
Also, Google "layton warewulf" to get Jeff Layton's excellent articles on WW.

Forget Perceus, WW is actively used and developed with very good people behind it. Also, it is part of the open OpenHPC project
