cloud provisioner should be installable as a gem
The docs suggest that installing in $confdir/modules is a good idea
I realize that it tells you to update your RUBYLIB, but… that’s kinda weak sauce.
This really should be a gem install.
I talked briefly with Michael about this, and he thought a gem install was a good idea.

So… my answer is different for Mac OS X vs Linux.
For Linux – a native package is fine. For OS X, either a homebrew recipe or a gem is preferred. Downloading a .dmg or an installer package is a pain and wastes a lot of time.
I’m managing EC2 from two locations – my os x laptop, and also a puppetmaster in EC2.
(sorry I replied via email the first time… i’ve been trained by RT).

As of puppet 3.0.0, puppet can load extensions from gems, so the core of this issue it taken care of. I’m closing this down because of that and the “[duplicate]” comment.
If there is another issue to address for cloud provisioner, that is probably better addressed in a new ticket.
