[Pkg-puppet-devel] Managing options in puppet.conf: helper scripts or includes

While working on integration puppetmaster and apache+passenger I ran into the
Two options need to be added to /etc/puppet/puppet.conf to configure the
puppetmaster to use apache2 SSL variables:
ssl_client_header = SSL_CLIENT_S_DN
ssl_client_verify_header = SSL_CLIENT_VERIFY
puppet.conf is a configuration file owned by the puppet-common package.
Thus the puppetmaster-passenger postinst script cannot automatically add
the necessary options to puppet.conf.
The solution suggested by the Debian policy is to have commands provided
by the puppet-common package to manage options in puppet.conf (eg
postconf from the postfix package).
Another option is to have the puppet configuration engine support
include files (and/or .d directories).
What do you think?
