Bug #4415

Updated by Ben Hughes over 3 years ago



node puppetclient {

vcsrepo { "/usr/local/dev/repo":

ensure => present,

provider => git


notify { 'test123':

require => Vcsrepo['/usr/local/dev/repo']




if I dont sync vcsrepo and I remove the type source code for notify.rb, then puppet doesn't fail and just ignores them
