Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.  I have succeeded
in getting the kitchen stuff set up locally, but I still have no
idea actually what I am doing.  I had to install the test-kitchen
gem separately, but other than that the instructions worked.  I
assume that we don't need this if we are using and existing VM, but
it looks like a fun way to learn puppet, so I will keep (slowly)
working on it.
