We've Moved!

Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA:


Facter automatically adds facterlib and $: entries that contain facter/ to facter search path.

At certain times – particularly when developing facter with older versions installed facts may break due to modules being refactored and a more specific fact being in the rubylib facter dir.

Add -I and -x to allow tuning of this from command line plus appropriate library calls to blacklist paths from search path generation.
