We've Moved!

Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA:


This is a multi-part ticket. To fulfill the objective, we need to do the following things:

  • Lay out the skeleton of the Puppet 2.7 manual and include sections on installing and configuring Puppet.
    • The installation section should include info about available and preferred ways of installing Puppet. It should be comprehensive but opinionated.
  • Rewrite current “getting started” material into a pair of walkthroughs. These will exist outside the manual.
    • One should help users get agents talking to a master and pulling a simple config.
    • The other should help users institute a masterless setup that regularly compiles/runs a configuration from manifests updated out of band.

All parts of this should treat Windows agents as equal peers to *nix agents.
