I cc'd the vcl-dev list.

The URL you included was wrong.  listener.py does provide status for partimage 
as well.  I updated it.

However, xcat does not use listener.py to determine when a node is 
successfully loaded.  updateflag.awk is a postscript that connects back to 
xcatd on the management node to tell it the node has finished installing.  
updateflag.awk is called from the partimageng postscript.  That's where you'll 
need to start to debug why it gets stuck in a reinstall loop.
