There’s interest in the ability to disable PuppetDB update checking support entirely (the current functionality whereby PuppetDB attempts to tell the user what the latest revision is), and it seems like a fairly simple thing to add. Perhaps a specific value for update-server in the config that would result in the check being skipped?
