In relation to: http://docs.puppetlabs.com/guides/provider_development.html
Since #6907, the provider “confines” are late-binding and so can be marked as suitable during a run if dependencies become available. The
confine :feature syntax should also be preferred instead of
confine :true => Puppet.features as it will allow for optimisations, e.g. #14822.
I’ve already updated the wiki before realising it was now in the docs: http://projects.puppetlabs.com/projects/puppet/wiki/Development_Provider_Development/diff?version=5&version_from=4&commit=View+differences
