Today I was honored by being asked to write a post on the official Puppet labs blog. That post is here. I wrote on my continuing efforts to use Puppet in a rootless environment.
Anyone looking to do more work in the rootless environment should check out Cory Osman's nonroot puppet repository here. You can see the rootless stdlib UTi is developing here.
And Daenny is putting together a group blog called puppet-a-day. I recommend it for staying current on Puppet best practices, and if you have cool things I recommend you submit them there!
