We've Moved!

Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA:


Understandably, not all firewall rules can be handled by the subset of options presented by the firewall types. Users should be able to define their own custom rules as necessary.

For instance:

firewall { '1234 do random stuff':
  custom => 'Some random ip6tables rules',
  provider => 'ip6tables'

Hiya … I’ve fall behind a bit on all this work, also the bug tracker is moving to here: I’ve managed to move what I still think is relevant and merge up items that are related. Consider this a slight declaration of ‘ticket debt’. If you think you’re issue isn’t represented in the new tracker feel free to open a new one.

Apologies for any confusion :–).
