Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA:


The following manifest:

@@file { "/tmp/blag.txt": content => "test1"; }
File <||>

when run produces the following output:

$ sudo puppet apply -v --storeconfigs /tmp/test.pp
info: Loading facts in certname
info: Loading facts in certname
info: Connecting to sqlite3 database: /var/lib/puppet/state/clientconfigs.sqlite3
info: Caching catalog for zbook.puppetlabs.lan
info: Applying configuration version '1303341787'
notice: /Stage[main]//File[/tmp/blag.txt]/ensure: defined content as '{md5}098f6bcd4621d373cade4e832627b4f6'

Using the syntax of <||> should only realize virtual resources and not exported resources.
