I have a plugin for a Python application, Sentry, which I am installing via GitHub like so:

package{ 'sentry-hipchat':
  ensure   => 'cfac72b33dc8468745669ea65998a5b911e9aae0',
  provider => 'pip',
  source   => 'git+git://'

When running the Puppet agent with —debug —trace —test, I can see Puppet checks the output of ‘pip freeze’, however the output from this command, for packages installed from GitHub seems to differ, and I don’t believe it will match the regex used here:

Here is some sample output from ‘pip freeze’ on my system:

-e git://

I’m using Puppet 2.7.13, installed via RubyGems, on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit, running Ruby 1.9.3p448.

The output from the Puppet agent run is as follows:

debug: Puppet::Type::Package::ProviderPip: Executing '/usr/bin/pip freeze'
debug: Puppet::Type::Package::ProviderPip: Executing '/usr/bin/pip freeze'
debug: Puppet::Type::Package::ProviderPip: Executing '/usr/bin/pip install -q -e git+git://'
notice: /Stage[main]/Ih-sentry/Package[sentry-hipchat]/ensure: created
info: /Stage[main]/Ih-sentry/Package[sentry-hipchat]: Scheduling refresh of Service[sentry]
info: /Stage[main]/Ih-sentry/Package[sentry-hipchat]: Scheduling refresh of Service[sentry-udp]
info: /Stage[main]/Ih-sentry/Package[sentry-hipchat]: Scheduling refresh of Service[sentry-celery]

As you can see, the package is ‘created’, which triggers a refresh of the services, even though there is no need.

Does anyone have any advice?
