Name        : facter
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.6.5
Release     : 4.fc16
URL         : http://www.puppetlabs.com/puppet/related-projects/facter/
Summary     : Ruby module for collecting simple facts about a host operating system
Description :
Ruby module for collecting simple facts about a host Operating
system. Some of the facts are preconfigured, such as the hostname and the
operating system. Additional facts can be added through simple Ruby scripts

Update Information:

Previous facter packages added requirements on dmidecode and pciutils.  These are not available on all architectures supported by Fedora and EPEL.  To remedy this, facter is no longer a noarch package and the dependencies are only included on architectures where they are available.

Additionally, a regression in processing ec2 facts is corrected, with thanks to Jeremy Katz for the patch.

Lastly, timestamps are now preserved by the install script.  This avoids many spurious changes when the package is updated.
