The puppet 2.7.13 RPM for EL6 x86_64 from is missing files for the “puppet module” face.

# puppet module 
Error: Unknown Puppet subcommand 'module'
See 'puppet help' for help on available puppet subcommands

# puppet help module
err: Could not find Puppet Face :module
err: Try 'puppet help help help' for usage

After grabbing files from pe-puppet-2.7.12 and dropping in /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/puppet/face/module.rb and /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/puppet/application/module.rb, things work.

# puppet module 
err: 'module' has no default action.  See `puppet help module`.

# puppet help module
USAGE: puppet module

  • Status changed from Unreviewed to Rejected

The puppet module face hasn’t been released in FOSS puppet yet (but will be in 2.7.14).

It did make it into the pe-puppet that shipped with PE 2.5. It would have been in 2.7.13, but 2.7.13 got bumped to 2.7.14 by our recent security release.

Module of the Week: rtyler/jenkins – Continuous Integration Server implied that it was available, which is why I went looking for it. I guess I’ll wait. :–(
