I realize this seems a little chicken <—> egg-ish, but it’d be cool to just say include puppetlabs_repos or include puppetlabs_pe_repos and have the appropriate yum or apt repos enabled. This is obviously not super useful for installing Puppet, but it’d be awesome for PuppetDB and the PuppetDB terminus plugins.

And come to think of it, there might be a possibility of using it in improved PE agent upgrades someday soon. That’d be pretty badass.

FWIW, if this module included puppetlabs-apt, you can use:

apt::source { 'puppetlabs':
  location   => '',
  repos      => 'main',
  key        => '4BD6EC30',
  key_server => '',
