Name        : puppet
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 2.6.6
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : http://puppetlabs.com
Summary     : A network tool for managing many disparate systems
Description :
Puppet lets you centrally manage every important aspect of your system using a
cross-platform specification language that manages all the separate elements
normally aggregated in different files, like users, cron jobs, and hosts,
along with obviously discrete elements like packages, services, and files.

Update Information:

The update to puppet-2.6.6 brings a large number of bug fixes and several new language features.  As is typical with puppet version bumps, it is recommended to update the puppetmaster before updating the clients.
