A new release of pdsh is available for download from sourceforge:
I notice that pdsh-2.15 never made it to sourceforge, so here is a summary
of the changes between 2.14 and 2.16:
* Changes in pdsh-2.16 (2008-03-19)
-- Don't attempt to read WCOLL file unless no other host
selection method is utilized.
-- (genders) Don't attempt to read a genders file if no genders
options are used.
-- When specifying rcmd_type via -w (i.e. [rcmd_type:][user@...)
have rcmd_type apply across all hosts until the next rcmd
specification. That is ssh:host1,host2 now uses ssh for both
host1 and host2. Prior to this change, ssh would only be used
to contact host1. Same change for [user].
-- Check for valid fanout specified to -f option.
-- Always sort output of dshbak, and remove dshbak -s option.
-- Strip leading space (added by pdsh) from dsbak output.
* Changes in pdsh-2.15 (2007-10-24)
-- Refactor ssh module to use built in "pipecmd" support
(same code as the "exec" module)
-- Add connect timeout support for ssh implementations which support it.
By default, the OpenSSH "-oConnectTimeout=%d" option is used. This
can be overridden at configure time using
where OPTION should contain one %d which will be expanded to the
actual timeout value specified on the command line.
-- Add ncurses-devel to pdsh.spec BuildRequires.
