Great. I will see if I can also be available to work at this time.
> On the agenda so far:
> * add the recent patch that was requested for puppetrun with tags
> * Provide more of the ext/ directory in examples or as built in functions
> (based on discussion on puppet-dev list upstream)
> * split out vim/emacs support into separate packages
> * refactor packages so that "tools are distinct from services"
> * create one package for the puppet service, one for the puppetmaster
> service, and one common package both depend on.
Although I support this idea, i'm wondering how the drive by upstream
towards a merging into one command (puppetmaster) will impact this
work... in particular, I wonder if it might be wasted if upstream is
going to change everything soon.
On another subject, I had another thought, which was to go through and
cherry-pick fixes from the upcoming 0.25.2 and push them out to Debian
before 0.25.2 is released. It seems like 0.25.2 is still a little ways
off, but there are some particularly annoying issues in 0.25.1 that have
received commits to fix them, and have been tested. I know I've reported
a few and am running a multi-patched version that fixes various
issues. I've done this in the past, and it worked fairly well.
