We've Moved!

Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA:


This is happening in Net::HTTP, which seems to be trying to read the first bit of the response as a header, and then failing because it’s wrong. It’s not immediately clear what’s going wrong in Puppet to cause that to happen, as response bodies containing newlines obviously work in other places.
