documentation gap for non-trivial providers and types
|Assignee:||Mike Hall||% Done:|
(this bug being filed as per discussion on dev mailing list)
There is a lacking in the documentation for non-trivial resource providers. http://docs.puppetlabs.com/guides/complete_resource_example.html gives a fairly trivial “example”. There are no additional stepping stones given to implement a more interesting, yet “clean” provider. (one that is more fully featured, yet needs no back-end additional hacks such as the “user” class)
Additional information such as “ensurable” can be expanded to a full clause with subpproperties.
