[Baypiggies] Newbie: Deployment tools?

Fabric is the more capistrano-ish tool if all your looking for is scriptable
deployment. Buildout does more but it seems more "magic" to me and imposes a
bit of structure on your project. Fabric on the other hand is pretty much
just a quick way of creating command line tools that do 3 common deployment
tasks: run local commands, use ssh to move files, and run remote commands on
the deployment target. I found fabric much easier to wrap my head around and
it satisfied my (limited) deployment needs. YMMV!
