External facts does not parse text facts with an '=' correctly.
|Keywords:||Affected Facter version:|
Since the general format for txt facts is like this:
There is some ambiguity around what will happen if you want an ‘=’ in your fact value. It seems that this is not dealt with in the most desirable away. If you have an external fact defined as:
Then when you run Facter, it will return:
$ facter test_fact=a => a
This is probably not the behavior that we’re looking for, as there is more likely to be a case where you may want an ‘=’ in your fact value then in your fact name. This should just be a quick fix in the txt parser.
