Congrats and thanks!

For the impatient, I updated the Fedora and EPEL packages¹ at
http://tmz.fedorapeople.org/repo/puppet/. I'll work on getting 0.24.8
into the official repos over the next few days.

¹ No Rawhide/F11 packages yet, as my build box is CentOS 5 and will
need an rpm update to create rawhide/F11 packages. The F10 packages
_may_ work on rawhide/F11. If not, a simple rebuild will suffice.

New Solaris packages here:


These are already in the testing repos for OpenCSW and Blastwave, expect them to transition to current and stable in the coming months.

Feedback welcome.
