A couple of challenging items:
Improve AutoPkg integration - /url">@Banks][/url has some limitations of his current JSS AutoPkg solution listed under "Known Issues" here: [https://github.com/arubdesu/jss-autopkg-addon
Automatically fix MDM issues for Casper 9.x-managed Macs - I've got a solution for auto-fixing busted MDM on Casper 8.x, with the details here: http://derflounder.wordpress.com/2013/08/31/automatically-fixing-casper-mac-mdm-enrollment/
At this time, there isn't a comparable solution for Casper 9.x that can fix MDM certs on a Mac as part of a policy.

@jacob_salmela, there must be so this in your environment that can be better resolved via a script?
That's the way I've learnt, need = requirement = script.

Thirding @rtrouton's post. AutoPkg is a huge timesaver and error-reduction utility for all Mac admins out there, and the more people building AutoPkg recipes that can be shared, the easier all of our jobs get. Every Mac administration tool would be well-served with a hook to AutoPkg - some automated means of getting a downloaded package imported into its distribution system. As Casper is probably the biggest fish in this pond, anything we can do to automatically feed it will take a lot of the needs for repackaging and redeploying things out of the equation.
